White Springs Christmas parade delights the crowd

Jasper — The town of White Springs ushered in the holiday season Friday night with their annual Christmas parade to the delight of hundreds of folks from near and far who came out to experience the joy of the season.

White Springs Vice Mayor Walter McKenzie and his wife Merri were the grand marshals of the parade, followed by White Springs Mayor Helen Miller, the Hamilton County Commissioners, the Hamilton County Chamber of Commerce and many more local dignitaries.

The streets were lined with young and old alike who watched wide-eyed as the parade procession meandered through the town on its way to Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park where a hot dog supper awaited guests inside Nelly Bly's Kitchen.

The Festival of Lights at Stephen Foster was a highlight of the evening, as the crowd converged on the park at the end of the parade to experience the beauty of all the Christmas lights and displays.

Be sure to get your copy of the Jasper News for more photos of the parade and the Festival of Lights. More photos will be posted in our online gallery soon and will be available for purchase.

Merry Christmas!
