New this year is a commercial area which will feature items which are not handmade and information of interest to shoppers.
The new kickoff time for the Olde Fashioned Christmas Parade, sponsored by the Crooked River Ranch-Terrebonne Chamber of Commerce, will be 3:30 p.m., based on popular demand.
Everyone is invited to participate in the parade -- businesses, organizations, families, pets and equestrian units, according to Hope Johnson, executive director of the chamber.

Admission is free. All events are held in the vicinity of 5195 S.W. Clubhouse Road, Crooked River Ranch.
