SEBRING - The planning of the annual Sebring Christmas Parade is already underway. Applications can be found online at www.heartlandyp.com, along with step-by-step instructions on how to become a parade participant.
The Heartland Young Professionals are organizing the parade. Entry fees are even being accepted through PayPal; in addition, organizations may still mail checks to the Heartland Young Professionals, P.O. Box 7393, Sebring, FL 33870.
This year, participants will not be required to attend a safety meeting; instead, participants must watch an eight-minute mandatory safety video available on the YP website.
"We are striving to make the application process easier and more convenient for the participants this year," said new YP President Johanna Johnston.
The theme for the 2013 parade is "A Classic Christmas."
"We received numerous requests for a simpler theme, so we thought it would be fun to see the community's interpretation of a classic Christmas," said YP Vice President Liz Barber.
