High winds last week prompted Rialto city officials to reschedule the city’s annual Holiday Parade and Vendor Fair for Dec. 10 at 10 a.m.
The festive celebration, with newly elected Mayor Deborah Robertson as parade Grand Marshall, showcases school marching bands and drill teams, floats and community members.
New this year will be a longer parade route, which begins at Etiwanda and Riverside avenues, continues south on Riverside Avenue then westbound to Rialto Avenue with the parade ending at Rialto and Palm avenues by the Civic Center, or “Santa’s Village” for the day.
At the Village, holiday revelers can enjoy a variety of activities including a snow playground, an inflatable ice castle, arts and crafts, and a carnival slide.
Pictures with Mr. and Mrs. Claus will also be available inside council chambers and children can write letters to Santa and send them off in a special holiday mailbox.
While all events are free and open to the public, donations of canned goods and new toys will be accepted will benefit Rialto Police Department’s Hearts to Share program to help provide gifts for children during the holiday, along with Rialto Child Assistance.
For more information about the parade or the day’s event, call 909-421-4949.
