Linda Lewis, president of the chamber, said registration is free and simple, and all residents, businesses and local organizations are welcome to enter a float.
Chambers officials invite all families in the area to the event, she said.
“It’s the kick off to the holiday season,” she said.
The parade will start at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday on 19th Street. For those entering a float, line-up begins at 4 p.m. in the parking lot of Walker High School.
Awards will be given for first, second and third place for the following categories: business, children, non-profit and antique cars.
Chamber officials ask that no floats include Santa Claus because he will be on the final car in the parade. They also ask that float riders not throw candy to spectators. Also, children on floats should be attended to by an adult.
Lewis added that Santa Claus will be on hand to give children coloring books and candy canes from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Chamber of Commerce office at the Community Health Systems Activities Center in Jasper.
Lewis also encouraged local residents to participate in the Chamber Checks program. Chamber Checks can be picked up at the Chamber of Commerce office and redeemed at many local stores.
“We (the Chamber of Commerce) believe we should buy local,” she said. “Let’s keep the money in our community that supports local causes all year long through the giving of volunteer and financial services.”
Lewis said the Chamber will also participate in the Downtown Merchant Association’s “Luminaries on Main Street” event.
