In addition to our festive parade we will have some fantastic music by local groups, blow up slides, animal balloons, free craft stations for the kids, specialty shopping, and Santa will be on hand to help you make some great photo memories for the event. The square will be decorated with lights and many of the windows around the town will be painted with a holiday theme, thanks to the hard work of our Chamber Elves.


The event is free to the public and everyone is invited to attend.  For more information on how you can participate, please visit us online to register as a parade entry, a vendor, or if you would like to be a volunteer the day of the event. Or call us at 903-583-4811. Entries are due by November 14. Prizes: 1st - $750, 2nd - $500, 3rd - $250. Our judges will be: Mike Bankston, Mark Johnston and Randall McGee. We look forward to everyone coming out and attending this great event.
