GREENVILLE, Ohio – Edison State Community College is proud to serve as a Platinum Sponsor for the 18th annual Hometown Holiday Horse Parade on Nov. 20th.
“We like to be involved with the community as much as we can,” said Chad Beanblossom, Vice President of Enrollment Management and Regional Campus Operations. “The parade brings a lot of different folks in from the community and from outside the community.”
Edison State Community College has served Darke County with a Greenville campus since the 1980s. Edison State has been at its current location of 601 Wagner Avenue since 2001.
“We’ve been extremely involved in the community and we have great community support,” Beanblossom said. “Our enrollment here has been growing over the last several years and it’s really been a positive relationship.”
This year’s parade, hosted by Main Street Greenville, takes place on S. Broadway Street on Nov. 20 starting at 7 p.m. The event traditionally features more than 90 lighted horse drawn carriages, hitches and riders.
The Hometown Holiday Horse Parade, led by Chairperson Diana Stebbins, provides a variety of entertainment options including music and free pony rides as well as shopping and dining options among Greenville’s unique selection of downtown businesses. The parade route travels down S. Broadway Street, travels around the circle and back up S. Broadway.
“The parade is just a cool, fun environment,” Beanblossom said. “There’s a lot of activities going on and it’s a neat thing to see if you’ve never been. It’s one of the neater events we participate in.”
