51 years of holiday cheer

Crowds gather to watch the Olivehurst Christmas Parade along Olivehurst Avenue on in 2018.


The 51st annual Olivehurst Christmas Parade will be held on Olivehurst Avenue between Fifth and Ninth Avenues in Olivehurst on Saturday, Dec. 14, starting at 11 a.m. 

Spectators will line Olivehurst Avenue as floats, school bands, youth organizations, fire engines and Santa traverse the main street in the south Yuba County community.

“It is always a good time,” said Dennise Burbank, president of SoYouCan and parade organizer.. “If you don’t have the holiday spirit yet, this should get it for you!” 

Sponsored by the local non-profit agency SoYouCan, the parade has become a holiday tradition for many families in the area. This years theme is “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” 

According to Burbank, about 25 float entries were registered as of Wednesday but registrations will continue to be accepted through the day of the parade.

For more information or to register a float, contact Burbank at 315-0437.
