[November 20, 2020]   Set aside 2 p.m. on Saturday, DECEMBER 12, 2020 to attend the annual Minier Christmas Parade. The theme this years: Its an Olympia-Spartan Strong Christmas. Student organizations and community groups from the Olympia district will be featured this year.

We believe that with social distancing, perhaps backing your car into the parking slots on Main St. and looking out your front windshield, we can have a safe, COVID-free event. Instead of floats where people may need to sit together, we encourage organizations to decorate a truck and have a walking unit

Santa will meet and greet youth at the gazebo in Veterans Park following the parade.

The Kiwanis Club of Olympia is the sponsor of this event. We believe we all need something special to look forward to and if we practice social distancing and mask-wearing, where and when appropriate, we can kick off the 2020 Christmas season with a great event.
