2019 Christmas Parade



The theme for 2019 Baxter Springs Christmas Parade is:  Baxter’s Old Time Pioneer Christmas.  This refers to Baxter Springs, Kansas founder Reverend Baxter.  We are hoping to have everyone interested in participating in the parade access the bountiful information that our Historical Museum offers regarding the founding of our beloved town. Many interpretations may be adapted to the parade including the pioneer days, cattle drives, Plains Indians, and development after the Civil War.  This year we embrace Baxter Springs’ past; next year we will herald in new beginnings as our Annual Banquet theme and Christmas Parade theme will be The Roaring 20’s (a prideful nod to our Lions).
