Due to the forecast of rain for Saturday, the decision has been made to move the Holiday Starlight Parade to Sunday. The parade will still commence at 6 p.m. and the route will remain on Market Street, from MLK to 3rd Street. The parade will be broadcast on Dec. 22, at 1 p.m. on WRCB TV Channel 3.
The Holiday Starlight Parade is made possible thanks to the generosity of Volkswagen Chattanooga, who serves as presenting sponsor. It is produced by Chattanooga Presents in cooperation with the city’s Department of Youth & Family Development.
The procession is expected to feature over 60 entries, consisting of regional bands, floats, walking units and of course, Volks Folks - all strung with festive holiday lights. Dozens of volunteers will also be walking along the parade route, handing out candy and other treats to kids young and old. However, the most anticipated entry is always saved for last – Santa himself – arriving with lots of pomp and good cheer.
