All entries are welcome and the lineup is at 4:45 p.m. on Pennsylvania Ave.
Businesses and residents are encouraged to decorate a float, put lights on a pickup, march in costume, etc., to be a participant in the 125th anniversary celebration.
After the parade, Santa will appear at the American Legion Hall to distribute goodies to the children.
A homemade soup supper will also take place at the Legion Hall. All donations will go toward the Venango Lions Club.
