PARADE UPDATE: Unfortunately, the weather forecast has gotten worse for both temperature and precipitation and we are not going to be able to have our Christmas parade on December 8th as originally planned. We are, however, working with GDOT to get approval to reschedule the parade. The reschedule date is next Saturday, December 15th at 2pm. Thank you for understanding!
