in Chippewa Falls. And Eau Claire will not be outdone!

The Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department announced a new winter parade in Eau Claire that’s set for Dec. 15 of this year. The aptly named Clearwater Winter Parade and Family Fun Celebration is meant to promote community and family activities that often get looked over in the winter months. Proceeds from the events will be used to fund scholarships for youth activities, programs and Fairfax Pool passes. Hobbs Ice Center will play host to the events with the parade running down Water Street. Businesses or organizations interested in having a float in the winter parade should turn an application into the Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department by Nov. 14.
