13th Annual Defiance Christmas Festival, December 3

Get in the holiday spirit on December 3 and celebrate Christmas in Defiance for their 13th Annual Christmas Festival and Parade. The morning kicks off at 8:30 with a breakfast buffet at Defiance Roadhouse and the 5K run/walk at 9 a.m. In downtown Defiance, there will be a Christmas Market, and the Scott and Karl Duo will perform at the Highway 94 S-curve.

The parade will begin at noon, and “Mayor” John Lacy will be the Grand Marshall this year. Enter the parade for a chance to win $100; there are several categories to enter, and one winner will be chosen from each category. Santa will be available for visits and photos after the parade at 2:30 p.m.

Proceeds from the Festival will benefit the Augusta Volunteer Fire Department. For more details and registration info, click here to view flyer or visit Facebook @defiancemo.

Stop by St. Paul's UCC in Defiance after the parade for lunch and buy your Christmas Cookies.
