Christmas Parade Theme: Storybook Christmas PDF Print E-mail

Saturday, December 1 at 6 pm

Nashville, Ga.— The annual Christmas Parade, which is organized by the Berrien County Chamber of Commerce, is scheduled for Saturday, December 1 beginning at 6 p.m.  The theme for this year’s parade is “Storybook Christmas”.  Line up for the parade will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Middle School Circle.  To ensure the safety of the spectators as well as the participants several rules will be enforced for this year’s parade.  Also, each parade entry must register with the Chamber of Commerce by November 26 including a $10 entry fee.



     “Again this year, the entry fee paid by participants will be used to adopt a local family for Christmas on behalf of the Chamber and the parade participants,” said Crissy Staley, executive director, Berrien County Chamber of Commerce.  “We purchase all the gifts locally, so the entry fee helps support local businesses and local families”
