From STAFF REPORTS
Christmas is fast-approaching and the Town of Jonesborough is gearing up for another festive season. What better opportunity to spend time with family and friends than to grab a cup of hot chocolate, throw on mittens and hats and gather on Main Street in downtown Jonesborough to watch the annual lighted nighttime Christmas Parade.
The Town of Jonesborough will host the 2019 Jonesborough Christmas Parade, on Saturday, Dec. 14, beginning at 6 p.m. The parade will begin on Boone street, progress to Main Street and Historic Downtown then end at the intersection at Washington Avenue.
The Special Event Committee is requesting floats and entries be decorated with a Christmas holiday theme. Entries are now being accepted for the parade and special interest lies in entries that contain: live Christmas music, floats lit with Christmas lights, horses (only those that are well-controlled in large crowd situations) and antique cars.
Additional information about the parade as well as registration information can be found at jonesboroughtn.org For more information, contact Rachel Conger at [email protected] or call (423) 791-3869.
Come enjoy the beautiful floats and entries in this unique nighttime parade among whimsical lights and all the decorations of the season. Also be sure to stick around after the parade for Christmas In Olde Jonesborough when the shops in Historic Downtown Jonesborough stay open for extended holiday hours to help you enjoy the holidays in a relaxed, hometown atmosphere. Children are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped gift to be delivered to disadvantaged children in Washington County.
