The annual Christmas Parade for the City of Gravette is scheduled for Saturday, December 7, 2019, at 4:30 PM on Main Street. The theme for this year's event is 'O Christmas Tree.' Parade entries are encouraged to decorate their floats or vehicles to fit the theme. Trophies will be awarded to the most festive entry, the best use of lights, and best use of the theme. Winners will be announced at the museum at 5:30 PM on the main porch. Entries can be submitted on the City of Gravette website at www.GravetteAR.com.
Following the Christmas parade, the Gravette Historical Museum will host its annual holiday open house on the museum grounds. Santa will be available for free pictures. There will be hot dogs, chips, drinks, cookies, and hot chocolate. The fire department and police department will battle it out in the police versus fire chili cook-off.
