Parade Dedicated to “Winter Nights and Christmas Lights," Dec. 13
fast-approaching and the Town of Jonesborough is gearing up for another festive
season. Christmas provides the opportunity to celebrate all things near
and dear to us and to spend time with all of our loved ones. What better
opportunity to spend time with family and friends than to grab a cup of hot
chocolate, don the mittens and hats and gather on Main Street in downtown
Jonesborough to watch the annual lighted nighttime Christmas Parade.
The Jonesborough The Parks and Recreation Department is proud to bring you the
2014 Jonesborough Christmas Parade. The theme this year is “Winter Nights
and Christmas Lights.” The department is accepting all entries and is
especially interested in live music, floats lit with Christmas lights,
horses (only those that are well-controlled in large crowd situations) and
antique cars. Every entrant is asked to decorate their float/entry
around the “Winter Nights and Christmas Lights” theme and the incorporation of
music (live or not) as well as lights with each float/entry are encouraged.
Prizes for the parade are also judged around these elements.
The parade will begin at 6 p.m. on
Saturday, December 13th on Boone Street and will progress to Main
Street and Historic Downtown, ending at the Washington Avenue
