Lebanon is a small city located between Cincinnati and Dayton. I couldn’t find any information about where to park, so I set my GPS for just plain “Lebanon, Ohio” and hoped the answer would be obvious when I arrived. Fortunately, it was, but if you plan to go, I’d recommend getting there at least a couple of hours before the parade starts since the on-street parking near the city’s downtown area fills up fairly quickly.
ProTip: Lebanon is also an easy 25-minute drive from the Cincinnati Dover Saddlery store, in case you want to end your trip with a bit of shopping.
Enjoy these photos of just a few of the many entries from this year’s parade. And if you live in the area, add this event to your holiday season calendar for 2016. You won’t regret it!
