Oxford’s annual Christmas parade will begin at 6:30 p.m. following a route from the University Museum to S. Lamar, through the Square and ending near Volta on N. Lamar. Stronger Together Oxford is in charge of the Christmas parade. This year’s theme is a “Whobilation” a reference to the celebration in Dr. Suess’s classic book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”.

Weather is forecast to be around 44 degrees at parade time, with a light wind from the northwest. The forecast is much better than last year, when the parade was postponed a day due to stormy weather conditions.
