   The Grenada Christmas parade is coming together right on schedule, according to officials with the Chamber of Commerce.
   “It’s a late bloomer. It generally doesn’t start showing up on people’s radar until about mid-November,” said Chamber Director Glenn Smith.
   As Smith spoke, four people waited in line at the chamber office in west Grenada to enter their floats.
   According to Membership Coordinator Viola Ratliff, the parade, which is scheduled for Dec. 4, at 4 p.m., usually features around 70 entries. So far only 30 have signed up, but chamber officials aren’t concerned.
   “We’re on pace to have a great parade,” said Ratliff.
   The theme for this year’s parade is “Music Tells the Christmas Story.
   “The floats and entries will have something to do with music,” said Smith.
   “We really don’t have strict criteria,” said Ratliff, adding that most any entry is welcome, but those wishing to be judged should adhered to the theme.
