Seasons Greetings Clayton Christmas Parade past participants, spectators and Clayton area residents

The Clayton Rotary Club and The Town of Clayton want to remind all parade participants, volunteers and spectators of the long-established set of safety measures for the Clayton Christmas Parade slated for Saturday, December 9th. As with any special event, safety is our number one priority. Incident action plans are in place and are constantly being adjusted to ensure the safest environment possible. The Clayton Police Department will be verifying vehicles participating in the parade have a current registration and that all drivers have a valid operator’s license and are at least 18 years of age. We are looking forward to continuing the tradition of a safe and fun parade for all!
