In all of the pomp and circumstance, fire engine sirens, bands playing and kids looking for candy, Santa will be coming to town on Thursday night. The annual Hartselle Christmas Parade, sponsored by Hartselle Kiwanis Club, will be held Thur., Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. This year’s theme is ”A Storybook Christmas”.

As in years past, Santa will be bringing up the rear of the parade right in front of the horses, waving to all the onlookers and catching the attention of youngsters as their eyes grow bright watching the jolly old man. Santa will be aboard his sled, not pulled by reindeer this night but ready for his annual trip come Christmas Eve.

The parade will follow the usual route, lining up in the parking lot at J. P. Cain Stadium for floats, vehicles, emergency vehicles and horses. Antique vehicles and tractors will join in at Russell Forest Products. Three local bands will be participants this year, including Hartselle High School, Falkville High School and Danville High School.

The bands will line up at Hartselle Junior High parking lot and join the parade on Railroad St. behind Hartselle Junior High School. Walking groups will also line up at HJHS.

The parade will begin at 7:00 p.m. The route will follow Railroad St. from the stadium to Main St. where it will turn left and continue down Main to Corsbie, turning left and where it will end in the Tractor Supply parking lot.

To protect the safety of parade organizers and those who are parade participants’ vehicles will not be allowed in the parking lot of J.P. Cain Stadium.

All are encouraged and welcome to attend this annual event.

Many downtown merchants will be open late welcoming shoppers prior and during the parade. Hartselle Lions Club will also be accepting can food donations for local food pantries throughout the parade route on Thursday night as well.
