23rd Annual Christmas Parade: A Parade of States Is Coming to Main Street
The 23rd Annual Christmas Parade is scheduled for this Friday. This year’s parade will be a procession of lights, bands, community leaders and floats commemorating the states that make up this great nation. We have been working hard all year to ensure that our community has an amazing experience that won’t soon be forgotten.
Here is all you need to know about making sure you have the best experience possible with several thousand of your closest friends and family.
Prepare for the weather
Being outdoors can be fun—but it can also be somewhat uncomfortable if unprepared. The weather is forecasted to be a little chilly on Friday night, so make sure you plan accordingly. Bundle up in layers with your favorite thermals, hats, gloves and heavy coats to ensure that heavier garments can be shed if you get too warm.
The parade begins at 6:30 pm, which is dinner time for most. Be sure to stop into Chick-fil-A or Zum Rosenhof for a quick bite to eat before cozying into your favorite spot. A cooler bag full of snacks is also always a good idea when planning to be outside for a while.
We all know that with small children, you have a narrow window of opportunity to get everything right; however, that does not mean that you shouldn’t try. Make sure you do a little research about the parade route to find the best place to set up for your family. Decide if you would like to be near the grandstand to see all of the entrants perform or do you want a spot away from the crowds with your favorite lawn chair and winter blanket.
Develop an exit strategy
Once the hot chocolate is gone, the parade is over and the fun has been had by all, it’s time to brave the crowd and make your way back to your car. When you park your car, drop a pin on the map on your phone so you don’t have to wonder if you parked on Court Street or Commerce Street.
The Christmas parade is one of our favorite events all year and we hope you and your family will enjoy watching the illuminated floats as they go by. This evening will be the culminating event of Hinesville’s holiday kickoff and will end with a visit from Old Saint Nick. Be sure to keep up with the Liberty Chamber Facebook page for more information. We hope to see you there!
