Darren Doyle, story:
Although Halloween has just ended, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before you know it, and that means it's time to plan for the annual Lions Club Christmas Parade.
This year's event has been scheduled for Saturday evening, November 25, 2017 at 6pm. The 2017 theme will be "Christmas Traditions," and those entering floats and other rides are asked to begin lining up at Edmonson County High School at 5pm. Participants are encouraged to toss candy and prizes out to the crowd during the parade route.
Lions Club member A.B. Webb, who is also one of the coordinators of the event, said the club received a very positive response from the public by having the event on Thanksgiving weekend.
"We had a great crowd last year and we heard that it helped jump start the Christmas season for a lot of people," he said. "If we have it any sooner, then it's before Thanksgiving, which doesn't really work. If you have it later, it begins to interfere with other Christmas parades and activities. We want as many to enjoy it as possible."
