Christmas Parade 2015

2015 marked the first year of the parade route house decorating competition.  The winner was Ashley Blitchington located at 502 Magnolia Avenue.

This year’s Christmas Parade was a huge success. It had some very light rain early on but the weather turned perfect right before it started. Huge crowds lined the streets to see the over 50+ entries that included antique cars, decorated floats, marching bands, horses, motorcycles, and many others. We cannot wait to see what next year has in store on December 3, 2016. We hope to see you there!
