Annual Bryant Christmas parade is this Thursday evening

Thirty-four entries have come in for Bryant’s 5th Annual Christmas Parade, sponsored by[more] Edwards Food Giant, on Thursday, Dec. 6 at 6:30 p.m. Others are welcome to join the parade and will be added at the end of the current lineup. “We have some really great, novel entries“ noted Carla Harris of Bank of the Ozarks, chairperson for the parade.

The 13-year-old World Series Champions will be the Grand Marshalls leading the parade. They are sponsored by Landers Auto Sales of Saline County.

“We need to stress the parade will be on Reynolds south of Interstate 30 going down Reynolds Road from Sullivan to Northwest 4th Street, right on Northwest 4th and right on Wise to Boswell to School making a complete circle back to the Middle School parking lot,” noted Rae Ann Fields, Executive Director of the Bryant Area Chamber of Commerce.

Since the predominance of the parade takes place in front of the new High School, the City of Bryant will place bleachers in front of the school. Viewers may sit on these stands for optimum viewing.

The parade line-up is at 5:30 p.m. at Bryant Middle School and proceeds down Sullivan to Reynolds Road.


Please enter the float line up area (at the Middle School Parking lot by the Football Stadium) by either School or Sullivan Road. Avoid coming down Sullivan after 6 traffic may be backed up. If you are arriving after 6:15 p.m you will find Reynolds Road blocked by the police and you will have to find a way around and in through School Street or Woodland Drive.

Entries will line up by rows numbered 1-10, 11-20, 21-30, etc. Floats, walkers, etc., do not have to be in strict numerical order, but in the row that includes your parade number.

Please enter at Woodland Drive and go in front of the schools to the Middle School Parking lot. You will be dropping off your children in the first entrance of the parking lot by the cafeteria. We ask that YOU LEAVE BY EXITING THE SAME WAY YOU ENTERED so that drop off traffic does not cross float traffic coming in. Thank you for helping us keep it safe.

BE AWARE THAT REYNOLDS ROAD WILL BE CLOSED TO TRAFFIC BY THE POLICE AT 6:15 P.M. So if you want to drop off and get positioned to view the parade you MUST come early.

“Please be patient and courteous as this event is conducted by an all volunteer group. We invite you to be a part of planning and putting on the parade in the future,” noted Harris. Call 847-4702 or go to to volunteer.

“It will be important to be colorful, visual and lighted,” said Harris. Part of parade judging will be on the lighting of each entry. All churches, school organizations, businesses and community organizations are invited to participate. A $10 entry fee ($15 for late entry) is charged to cover the administration of the event. Prizes are $100, $75 and $50.
