This year we are proud to announce that Owensboro’s very own Jenny Beth Willis has been named Grand Marshal. At just 18 years old, Jenny Beth recently made it to the Top 40 finalists for the 2013 season of the hit TV show American Idol out of the tens of thousands that auditioned. Jenny Beth tried out for the show over a period of four months, which included auditions in both Hollywood and Las Vegas. We are very proud of Jenny Beth and enjoyed watching one of our very own on national television. Full Story

The Christmas Parade Committee would like to wish the best of luck on the retirement of Kevin Bruner from the parade committee. Kevin spent countless hours over the past years getting the Owensboro Christmas Parade to where it is today. We would like to take this opportunity to thank him for everything that he has done. Kevin brought this event out of the prehistoric times and into the modern era of technology with online applications, paypal payments, and even this website. It is obvious how much of an impact he has had on not only the committee, but the parade and the community as well. Good luck Kevin, you will be truly missed!
