In the spirit of Christmas in July, Visit Yuma is announcing the date and theme for the 2017 Dorothy Young Memorial Electric Light Parade. Now celebrating its 15th year, the parade will step off on Saturday, December 9, with the theme of "Your Favorite Christmas Movie."

Please complete and return form and entry fee prior to 5:00 p.m. on December 1st.
The parade draws tens of thousands of Yuma residents and visitors to the Historic North End each year to celebrate the holiday season and this year the tradition continues.
The Parade's best entries, as graded by a panel of judges, are recognized with an assortment of awards, including the Dorothy Young Memorial Trophy for Best Performance by a Marching Band, last year awarded to Gadsden Elementary School District #32, and the Mary Jane Allen award for best depiction of the parade theme, won by the Big Red Barn Preschool in 2016.
