KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- Kick off the holidays at the 35th Klamath Falls Snowflake Parade, tonight. 

The parade will last from about 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. Floats will get set up at Spring Street, just south of Main Street, and sail all the way through Downtown Klamath Falls. The parade will end around Second Street. 

It's Deborah Evans' first time seeing the parade and she said she's excited to be a part of such an important tradition. 

"It's not just here and there," said Evans. "Everybody shows up. It's just like, hello Christmas! And I'm a Christmas girl, so I'm good with that."

More than 100 different floats and trucks will sail down the streets of Downtown Klamath Falls. One of the trucks will be representing Laura's Littles, a baby clothing store owned by Kathryn Meadows. It'll be her first time having a truck in the Snowflake Parade. 

She said she's been watching the parade for years, but is excited to see her grandbabies dressed up as princesses and waving from the back of her store's truck. 

"All of Klamath Falls comes together for this," said Meadows. "All the businesses want to participate and make it a fun event for children and families. And being a small town, we kind of all know each other here. It's good to just get together and celebrate what we love."

Sky Lakes Medical Center's float fit this year's theme, Christmas Around the World.

"We decided to put on flags that represented employees at Sky Lakes. Each one of these represents an employee who was gracious enough to tell us where they are from," said employee Billie Owen.

She said the Snowflake Parade isn't just about the floats, it's about the experience, celebrating Chritstmas with the rest of Klamath Falls.

"Standing out here in the cold, watching it come together, watching people from different parts in the hospital come together and make somehting magical. It's about the spirit of Christmas," Owen said. "The whole thing is just awesome."

"We're part of the community. We are here for them," added fellow Sky Lakes employee Terri Bryant.

NewsWatch 12's Andryanna Sheppard and Jeff Donovan will be at tonight's parade with StormWrangler 12. Be sure to wave hi! 

Organizers said it's best to park a couple of blocks away from where the parade starts. It'll be close enough for you to walk to Downtown, but far enough away so you'll have an easier time leaving Downtown to get home.
