Organizers of the Rotonda West Christmas Holiday Parade have an ambitious goal in mind: they’d like to have 100 units in the event, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 27.
They’re already halfway there.

Fifty-two units have registered to date and Don Mahon, organizer, expects many more. He’s looking for entries for the festive parade, which will feature bands, floats, clowns, classic cars, Santa, and more.
There is no entry fee. Thousands are expected to view the Parade along Rotonda Circle, and three parade units will be selected for Best of Show trophies. Rotonda West VFW 10476 will sponsor a post-Parade picnic for participants and spectators.
The theme of the Parade is “Christmas” and all units should decorate their entries appropriately. Deadline for entries is Nov. 1. Rain date for the parade is Sunday, Nov. 28.
The main beneficiary of the Parade will be the food pantry at Englewood Helping Hand, Inc. Spectators are requested to bring non-perishable food items. Golf carts will travel the Parade route to pick up donations of canned food, paper goods, toys and cash donations.
