The Iola Lions Club, with help from the Iola Village Library, the Iola-Scandinavia Chamber of Commerce, and the Iola Historical Society, is organizing a Christmas Parade once again this year. With the help of you and so many others our 25th annual Christmas Parade will be a huge success. The Iola Lions Club is asking for your help to make this year’s parade another memorable event. The organizers ask that you decorate with the Christmas spirit and that the only Santa Claus be the one at the end of the parade. The parade route will be the same as it has been the previous years and will again end at the Iola Historical Society. Please meet up at the High School at 3:45pm on Saturday, December 3rd to get your place in the parade. With this being a late afternoon parade, feel free to decorate your floats, animals, (and people?) with Christmas lights! The festivities will continue at the Iola Historical Society machine shed building with a visit to see Santa Claus and drop off a letter to him. Refreshments will be available.

Please respond by November 27th if you can be counted on to participate in the 2023 Christmas Parade. R.S.V.P. by phone or text-715-281-5450 or email with the following information: Name Organization Contact Person Phone #/Email
