Deadline to register for Santa parade is Friday

(ran EAST, WEST, BEACH, SEMINOLE editions)

Strike up the band. Get your float ready. And hurry if you want to be in the annual Seminole Mall Santa Parade.

The event, which begins at 9 a.m. Nov. 23, forms on Liberty Lane and Johnson Boulevard and proceeds to the mall parking lot on Park Boulevard. Then it winds around the buildings, ending up at the Kmart store which fronts 113th Street.

"Everything takes place in the parking lots," said Shari Elter, who is taking the registrations. Last year, she said, there were 30 units in the parade.

The sign-up deadline is Friday. Register by stopping at the mall information desk or by calling Elter at 392-8174.
