The parade forms on Broad Street at 6:30PM and will begin at 7:30PM on Friday evening.
Carolyn Kough has dedicated her services to Newville for decades serving as the Chairman of the event along with a committee of dedicated volunteers. The committee has diligently worked to make several changes to create community involvement.
Organized by Charles "Chuck" Egger & Robert "Doggie" Jumper, the 5K race will be held on Friday evening, beginning at 6:00PM. Runners will finish the race at the Fountain and trophies will be awarded at 7:15PM, just before the start of the parade. Special thanks to the John Wolfe Insurance Agency and Egger Funeral Home of Newville and for sponsorship of the 5K race.

Kids Alley is supported this year by Big Spring Kiwanis Club & Bulldog Prep Academy. Mr. Mike’s Dinosaurs will be featured on Parsonage Street, Saturday from 9AM-1PM. Children will be able to create their favorite flavor of shaved ice by visiting the Kono Shave Ice Truck.
