November 22, 2019 (El Cajon) -- East County Magazine’s award-winning Contributing Editor, Paul Kruze, will be one of several celebrity announcers at this year’s iconic “Mother Goose Parade” set to hit the streets of downtown El Cajon on Sunday starting at 1 p.m. on Main Street.

“I’m truly honored to be a part of this classic start to the holiday season,” said Kruze, who has been a part of East County Magazine for nearly a decade. “The best part of my work is when I get to meet so many people who are involved in our community."

He adds, "While I sometimes have to write some difficult stories, my work is about being a part of the solution when community issues and concerns come up.”

The parade will feature nine announcers from San Diego media along the parade route. Kruze will be stationed at Anza Street.

The annual Mother Goose Parade is held on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. The parade includes colorful and exciting parade entries, such as floats, marching bands, giant helium balloons, clowns, eloquent equestrians, special guests, and of course Santa Claus at the end of the parade. It is one of the largest parades west of the Mississippi.

The parade route travels down Main Street. A tree lighting follows at dusk on Main and Magnolia.

Kruze in the past several years has been professionally recognized for his commitment to both print and broadcast journalism excellence, winning over a dozen awards from the San Diego Press Club and the Society of Professional Journalists.

Parade Route:

Eastbound Main Street from El Cajon Boulevard to 1st Avenue.
