NEW DATE, TIME & PARADE ROUTE
Staging Area: opens 2:30pm
As the holiday season approaches, planning for the 2013 Johnson City Christmas Parade is currently underway. This year’s parade will still take place in Downtown Johnson City, Tennessee, but with a few new additions.
“We are really excited about the route this year, “states Brandi Woodall, Events Director for the Friends of Olde Downtowne. “In addition to traveling down E. Main Street to Buffalo Street, the parade will also add a new leg of the route with West Walnut Street. The Friends of Olde Downtowne want to include as many opportunities to showcase that our Downtown corridor is much larger than many realize, and does not end or begin with Main Street. We are also very excited to announce that East Tennessee State University has created an event that will give parade-goers and the community even more opportunities to get into the Christmas spirit!”
The 2013 Johnson City Christmas Parade will begin promptly at 4pm on Saturday December 7th, 2013. Applications for parade entries are currently being accepted with applications being available online at www.downtownjc.org.
The East Tennessee State University Winter Celebration will directly follow the 2013 parade at the ETSU Foundation Carillon and Alumni Plaza. The event will feature a number of free activities for all, including holiday music by ETSU students, photos with Santa and reindeer games. Cookies and hot chocolate will be served and Jeff Cogburn, President of ETSU President’s Pride will read a holiday story. For more information on that event please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
