The city of Newnan Christmas Parade, hosted by the City of Newnan is set to return to the city next month after last year’s parade was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The parade will be held on Saturday, December 11, 2021 at 6:00 pm.
“The parade is an exciting event in the city during the holiday season, and we are so excited to bring back this annual tradition after switching up the holiday cheer last year due to the pandemic,” Ashley Copeland, communications manager for the City of Newnan. “Last year, in lieu of the parade, we created the Santa Express on the city trolley which was a huge success, but we are excited to invite everyone back to downtown Newnan to continue to annual tradition this year.”
This year’s theme for the parade will be a Parade of Lights. Retired Newnan Police Chief D.L. “Buster” Meadows will serve as the Grand Marshal for this year’s parade. Chief Meadows, who retired in late June 2021, retired after a long successful 48-year career with the Newnan Police Department, including a 19-year stint as chief.
The route for this year’s parade will be slightly different than in years past. The parade will move with the flow of traffic on Lagrange Street, head North on Greenville Street, and make a left on North Court Square.
Registration for any businesses and organizations wishing to enter floats in this year’s parade no later than Thursday, December 2, 2021. Registration information and other details about the 2021 parade are available at the following link: http://www.ci.newnan.ga.us/special_events_parades.php
