The Rome parade committee announced on Monday the deadline and $25 entry fee for the annual holiday event, which will take place on Nov. 27.
The 6:30 p.m. parade marches down Broad Street every year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, culminating in a visit from Santa Claus.
Every year a grand marshal is chosen, who is an unsung hero in the community.
This year’s grand Marshal will be announced at a breakfast at the Coosa Country Club the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, according to Janet Byington, a member of the parade committee.
Last year’s grand marshals were Sam and Janet Baltzer.
