The Orcutt Community Foundation and the Orcutt Lions Club present the 54th Annual Old Town Orcutt Christmas Parade, stepping off rain or shine at high noon Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015.

Great fun for the whole family, this parade is a Christmas tradition featuring an eclectic mix of kids, dogs, classic cars, horses, floats and bands, featuring nearly 80 entries. 

This year's theme is Orcutt Christmas Time, and the Grand Marshall will be Mark Steller. He and his wife Wendy own Old Town Market.

Steller is the current president and founding member of the Old Orcutt Merchant Association; a group of over 100 local merchants and business owners. He is actively involved in many other community organizations, as well.

The parade committee selected Mark because of his long time commitment to help Old Orcutt grow and thrive as a community.
Road closures will be in effect throughout the day. 

» Rice Ranch Road / S. Broadway from Orcutt Road to Pinal Ave. will be closed for entrant staging, affected from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. 

» S. Broadway (Pinal Ave. to Clark) / Clark Avenue (S. Broadway to Twitchell) will be closed from 11:30 a.m. throughout the parade's duration and will remain closed for street sweeping from 1 - 2 p.m.

» Access to S. Broadway from Pinal and Union Avenues will be restricted from 10:30 a.m. until the end of the parade.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
