Christmas Parade rolls through Barnesville Saturday

The second annual Christmas parade will roll through the streets of Barnesville Satuday night and the community is already buzzing with anticipation. The theme for the parade is ‘A Country Christmas’.

Interim city manager Tim Turner reported Monday he has over 30 volunteers on board to help.

Begun last year as a COVID diversion and a way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of Lamar County, the parade was an instant favorite, especially among the kids.

Santa will take part in the parade though he is altering his mode of transportation to a tricked-out Jeep so his reindeer can rest up for the big day.

Staging will begin at 3 p.m. at the Gordon parking lots off College Drive. The parade will roll out at 6:30 p.m.

The SEC Championship Game which pits Georgia vs. Alabama will be screened in the staging area as part of a tailgate party prior to the parade
