The city of Boonville is gearing up for its annual Christmas Parade, which happens to be the oldest parade in the state of Indiana, and you can be a part of the fun!

Boonville has a few claims to fame. There's Jeremy Spencer, the former drummer of rock band Five Finger Death Punch, Benjamin Bradley, who is the host of the Netflix series  Holiday Home Makeovers with Mr. Christmasand Devin Mockobee who is the current breakout running back at Purdue, then there's of the Afternoon Show on 99.5 WKDQ (I had to throw that in there for the fun of it). One other thing that the city is proud to have as a claim to fame is its annual Christmas Parade.

Boonville, Indiana's Christmas Parade is the longest continuous-running Christmas Parade in the State of Indiana. That's awesome! You don't have to be from Boonville to come out and get in on the fun. Anyone and everyone is welcome, not just for the parade, but for the whole weekend full of Christmas fun in Boonville.
