Lake Ozark Christmas Parade
December 10, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Decades of Lake Celebrations
“Christmas Through the Generations” is the theme for Lake of the Ozarks Christmas Parade on
Saturday, December 10 at 1:00 p.m.. This 38 th edition kicks off at the junction of Hwy 242 where
entries are staged to parade down Bagnell Dam Boulevard toward the dam.
Each year this Lake of the Ozarks Christmas celebration offers the Bagnell Dam Strip
Association an opportunity to give back to the community and invites everyone from the area to
enjoy the parade to the Bagnell Dam, “where the Lake began.”
“Through the Generations” suggests changes over the decades and that has been the story of the
Lake of the Ozarks Christmas Parade’s evolution as well. This year is no different adding
something new to the familiar. As in the past, the Marine Corps League Honor Guard sets the
pace and presents the flag, opening to the Grand Marshal leading an assortment of entries in
three categories: Business, Civic Organizations, Youth/Church Groups.
Santa makes his parade appearance as the finale, and leads the spectators to Luby’s Plaza for the Sweets Table and hot
beverages while Santa hears out the children’s requests, bestowing gift bags on each.
Through a people’s choice nomination, the Grand Marshal honor goes to Phyllis Marose for her decades of involvement.
New this year is a reviewing stand for live public broadcasting during the parade. From the stand
judges will review the entries and make the determination of first place winners in each of the
three categories with a cash prize of $150. A “Best Depiction of Theme” winner will earn a cash
prize of $250. Prizes will be presented at Luby’s Plaza following the parade.
Entries are still available at www/lakechristmasparade.com with a fee of $25 for individual
entries and $100 for car clubs and other multiple entries.
