A spike in parade entries received at the last minute pushed the number to an acceptable level for the 2011 Christmas Parade in downtown McMinnville, city officials say.“We have 60 entries,” said McMinnville Public Works assistant director Brad Hennessee. “The number does not include JROTC, band, or vehicles such as police or fire engines and those needed for the mayor or grand marshals. There were 60 paid entries.”The theme for this year’s parade is “It’s A Dr. Seuss Christmas.”
