Announcing the return of the Miracle on Kansas Avenue Parade, presented by Giant Communications.
This year’s parade is expected to feature up to 200 floats, marching bands, parade entries, and, of course, the highly anticipated arrival of Santa Claus.
Save the date, invite your friends and family, and join us for the “One Giant Celebration” of the holiday season at the 28th Annual Miracle on Kansas Parade, presented by Giant Communications. Let’s come together to create unforgettable memories and spread holiday cheer throughout our Capitol City.
Giant Communications, a telecommunications company based in Holton, Kansas, takes pride in being the presenting sponsor of this year’s festivities.
As we wrap up the nominations for this year’s Grand Marshal and Junior Grand Marshal for the Miracle on Kansas Ave Parade, we want to extend our warmest thanks to everyone who shared the magic of the season by submitting nominations. Your response was nothing short of enchanting, and the selection process, akin to unwrapping a holiday gift, was filled with excitement.
We were truly touched by the awe-inspiring descriptions of the candidates, some of whom even presented their achievements through heartwarming videos. In the spirit of the season, we’ve decided to add an extra touch of merriment by honoring an additional marshal.
While the nominations are now nestled under the metaphorical tree, we want to express our genuine gratitude for your spirited participation. For those who made it to the finalist stage, your contributions shone like holiday lights, and we hope to see your names twinkling on our nomination list again next year.
Wishing you all the joy and magic of the season,
Dr. JuliAnn Mazachek
