The 13th Annual Ooltewah-Collegedale Spirit of Christmas Parade is Sunday at 3 p.m. The parade route is south on Little Debbie Parkway then travels east on Apison Pike to Four Corners.
"The best place to view the parade is along Little Debbie Parkway," said Steve Ray, the parade's producer. "Just back your car in along the side of Little Debbie and enjoy."
Hundreds of participants, including the Ooltewah High School Marching Band and East Hamilton High School Band, will be participating.
"It's East Hamilton's first time to participate and we're very excited about having two great bands," Mr. Ray said. "And of course McKee Foods will be there giving free Little Debbie products away."
Mr. Ray said all proceeds go to the Samaritan Center located in Ooltewah.
"The Samaritan Center does great work. The employees there volunteer to make the parade a great success," he said.
