Manila 2012 Christmas parade will have a veteran's theme. It will be held the first Saturday in December.
Members of the parade committee invite all veterans from Northeast Arkansas to participate in the parade, bring their banners, and represent their Posts.
The co-grand marshals are veterans A.R. Slayton and Wesley Crouse.
"We welcome veterans to participate," Sherry Bunch Pratt, chairman, said. "We will treat them like royalty giving them the honor they deserve."
Individual veterans or groups interested in participating in the parade can contact Manila City Hall at 561-4437 or Pratt at (870) 897-7940.
