The City of Mt. Juliet is seeking participants for their annual Holiday Parade. This year’s theme is “Christmas through the Decades.” Entries are encouraged to choose a decade such as the 1920s or 1950s and decorate in the holiday spirit of that time. We’re expecting flappers and mobsters, poodle skirts and greasers, and a whole lot of creativity from all our participants.
Lead by Grand Marshall Erron Kinney, the City’s first Fire Chief, This year’s parade will begin at the First Baptist Church of Mt. Juliet, head northbound on N. Mt. Juliet Road, and then end when it reaches Charlie Daniels Parkway.
Entry fee is $10 which will go towards the Mt. Juliet Police Department’s Christmas with a Cop program. Each year, the Mt. Juliet Police Department selects low-income children, with the help of local schools, and takes them on a “shopping spree” for toys, clothes, books, and more. The Christmas with a Cop program started in 2005. Last year, the department was able to sponsor 21 children and hope to have more this year.
Parade Sponsored by: The City of Mt. Juliet, Mt. Juliet Parks & Recreation, TDS TV, ITR LLC, Two Rivers Ford, and Providence Marketplace.
