The Christmas season is officially here, with the much-loved Night of Lights Christmas Parade rolling down Jasper’s Main Street on Saturday, Dec. 4.
The parade starts at 6 p.m., but festivities begin earlier at 2 p.m. when food trucks and vendors will be on site. Also included in the day’s events are performances by Pickens school choruses, a tree lighting ceremony, and reading of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas by Lawton Baggs.
The parade will begin at the historic wooden bridge and travel south down Main Street. If you would still like to participate, floats, walkers, and vehicles can enter the parade up to the day of the event – just meet at the staging area at Revolution Church. Entry forms can be found on the Jasper Merchant’s Association Facebook page. This year’s theme is “Polar Express.”
JMA President Haley Bouchie said weather is shaping up to be perfect, and she thanked volunteers and sponsor T-Mobile. Jasper council member Kirk Raffield will be M.C. for the event. First, second, and third place prizes will be awarded.
