Calling all lovers of Christmas! Downtown Fresno Partnership is launching a Downtown Fresno Christmas Parade Community Planning Committee for 2018.

The committee will be instrumental in planning the 89th Annual Downtown Fresno Christmas Parade – including tasks like marketing, parade entry recruitment and solicitation, and logistics. There are 12-15 committee openings and members will be selected by a competitive process.

If you’re interested in applying to serve on the committee, we encourage you to attend the Information Session on January 25, 2018 at Joe’s Steakhouse (831 Van Ness Ave) from 5:30 – 6:30 pm.
