Annual Jackson Christmas parade is back

JACKSON, Tenn. — You could say it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas as the Hub City is getting into the holiday spirit.

“It’s a good kick off to the Christmas season,” said Carmen Lemaster, a parade viewer.

The annual Jackson-Madison County Christmas Parade is back this year after being cancelled last year. Some participants were anxious to get into the Christmas spirit.

“It is my first time being in this parade. I’m very elated to be in it, and I’m very excited for it,” said Blessy Garcia, a parade participant.

Some event goers were excited to see the different floats.

“I just like seeing all the new floats and all the lights on the cars,” said Lemaster.

Others say they were there to enjoy the music.

“My biggest thing is I love listening to drum lines. So I’m pretty excited about the different bands coming out, and I also like watching little kids getting excited about Santa Claus,” said Anthony Lemaster, who attended the parade.

Anthony Lemaster says this parade will help get you into a more cheerful mood.

“Not a lot of people are putting up lights now a days. So if you want to get that Christmas spirit, coming to the parade is one of the best ways to get it,” Anthony Lemaster said.
