The annual Christmas Parade will be held on Fri., Dec. 11, at 6 p.m.

The parade will line up in East Brewton. It will travel down Forrest Avenue, over the bridge on Mildred Street, to the main intersection at the railroad tracks. It will turn onto St. Joseph Street to Belleville Ave. and will disband on the side streets of McLellan, Rankin and Granberry.

Santa will arrive on the fire truck throwing tons of candy. Local businesses and civic organizations, in an effort to receive prize money, will build colorful floats. Mrs. Claus will also be riding in the parade throwing candy as well.

The parade is sponsored by the Greater Brewton Area Chamber of Commerce.

Everyone is urged to use safety precautions during and after the parade.

After the parade a “Christmas Movies Under the Stars” will be held at Jennings Park at 7:30 p.m. On tap are “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “Frosty’s Winter Wonderland.”

There will also be train rides through the park. T-shirts for the event will be available through the Yancy Jernigan Foundation.

The event is presented by the Women’s Business Center and sponsored by Peach Chevrolet.
