The Magnolia Area Chamber of Commerce Christmas parade will be held Dec. 8. This year's theme, "An American Christmas," offers an array of nostalgia and patriotism. Magnolia Area Chamber of Commerce (MACC) Chairman Barry Tate says the theme was selected in honor of history and America.
"While Santa Claus is an American icon we also wanted to give people the opportunity to show their patriotism in this election year and extend it beyond the November polls," Tate said. "Besides, what is more colorful than red, white and blue with Christmas green?"
Hometown Christmas is offered by the Magnolia Historical Society following the MACC Christmas Parade. Santa visits, the Cookie Express, games and the Christmas Market are all a part of the day's activities of Hometown Christmas at the historic Magnolia Depot Plaza on Melton Street.
The parade begins at 10 a.m. at the corner of Nichols Sawmill Road and Unity Park Drive. MACC suggests spectators arrive early. Parking and parade route details are forthcoming. Watch this publication for more information as the date approaches.
