The Brownsville Christmas Parade is scheduled for this Sunday night at 6pm. Parade Chairman Mike Blanton asks that all participants line up at Edmonson County High School at 5pm. The parade route will be the same as this year's fair day parade.
The route is scheduled to ECHS and will travel on Houchin Ferry Road first, then turning right on Main just past the Minit Mart. From there, the route will turn right again on Main Cross St (past the Community Center), then right again on Washington Street. Then, the parade will continue on Old North Main (behind Cee Bee) then over to Ferguson (in front of the Public Library), then back to Houchins Ferry Rd into the school parking lot.
Upon returning, parade participants are asked to leave from Wildcat Way, NOT Houchins Ferry Rd, as it will take a little while for the entire parade to return. Leaving out Houchins Ferry Rd will cause a traffic hazard.
The route will travel on the same roads, only backwards from the normal route. If you plan on watching the parade, you can line up or sit from any of the same places you always have.
Candy will undoubtedly be tossed about, and rumor has it that the big guy in a red hat is supposed to appear, we've also heard he's coming from the North Pole...
County and City officials hope to see you there.
