Three marching bands, Santa and Mrs. Claus, and a number of floats are expected to be a part of the annual Christmas Parade sponsored by the Greater Brewton Area Chamber of Commerce.
The parade is set to roll at 2 p.m. this Saturday, Dec. 11.
The parade will line up in East Brewton on Shoffner Street. It will come down Forrest Avenue, over the bridge to Mildred Street, to the main red light at the railroad tracks. There, it will turn onto St. Joseph to Belleville Avenue and will disband on side streets of McLellan, Rankin and Granberry.
Following the parade, Santa has agreed to visit with children in the Gazebo in the downtown park, talking to children and handing out prizes.
Preliminary weather forecasts call for a breezy day Saturday, with a high of 57.
