Twain Harte’s Winter Wonderland Parade
Santa arrived to the annual Twain Harte Christmas Parade in WWII 1941 Studebaker M29c Weasel Amphibious Assault Vehicle
The streets of Twain Harte will be filled with carolers, Santa Claus and holiday cheer this Friday night, both before and during the Twain Harte Christmas Parade.
Christmas Committee Volunteer Organizers Rich and Marilyn Knudsen were Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
The Knudsens say that this is always an exciting time for the community as it allows friends and family to celebrate the blessings of Christmas together.
The annual Christmas Carol Sing will begin under the arch at 5:30pm, the town tree will be lit at 6 PM and then the parade will begin at 6 pm with Santa’s arrival concluding the parade. Santa typically circles the parade twice, so that everyone in the audience will be able to see him and welcome him to town.
Summerville High School’s ‘Jazz at 8’ will help lead the crowd in singing Christmas Carols underneath the Christmas Tree at the downtown arch.
The parade begins in front of the Fire Station on Meadow Drive. It will travel under the arch and over to Fuller. The route makes a circle back to the Fire Station.
The Knudsens encourage residents and visitors to come out early.
Santa will stay long enough to visit with all of the children and have free pictures taken with them.
The next day, Saturday, there will be a free community dinner served at the old Twain Harte School.

The KVML “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45 on AM 1450 KVML and FM 102.7 KVML.
