Countdown Continues for Holiday Golf Cart Parade

The 2002 Holiday Golf Cart Parade in Sun City Center was a record year - it was even recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest with 191 carts in attendance. The 2003 parade is already off to a running start and promises to be bigger and better than ever. The countdown for the 2003 Holiday Golf Cart Parade continues as the registrations come in. The registration statistics for the week ending November 14 are:

Business: 47

Dignitaries: 17

Residential: 68

Clubs and Organizations: 49

Grand Total as of Nov. 14: 181

Registration numbers are running well ahead of last year’s record setting parade. With three weeks left to register, the current total is within 10 carts of last year’s record and organizers are hoping to significantly exceed that number. The parade will be held on Friday, December 5 beginning at 9:30 a.m. and will end with awards and live entertainment. Cash prizes totaling $5,250 will be awarded to the best decorated carts in three divisions and more than $3,000 will be donated to local organizations and charities. For registration information call 634-5111 ext. 103.
