Applications for Newnan Christmas parade on Dec. 4 available on city website

The City of Newnan’s annual Christmas parade will be held Sunday, December 4, beginning at 3 p.m.  The parade begins at Temple Avenue Park and continues on Jackson Street and LaGrange Street to Newnan High School.  Sit down by the hearth and have some hot chocolate as this year’s theme is “Home for the Holidays”.  The parade will include floats, walking groups, decorated cars and trucks, and marching bands. 

“We are looking forward to the parade this year.  It’s always an anticipated activity for the city. Christmas is a very special time, and it is fun to help spread the Christmas cheer.  To the delight of all the kids, Santa Claus is coming to town!” said Gina Snider, city of Newnan, public information officer.
