Annual Christmas parade set for Saturday evening

CROSSVILLE — The holidays are just around the corner and that means Christmas is not far away, and any thoughts of Christmas brings the city of Crossville’s Annual Christmas Parade into the conversation. The big City Christmas Parade will be held this year on Saturday, Dec. 14, getting under way at 4:30 p.m. The parade route will follow the same route as last year, beginning on Stanley, connecting with Main St. and heading north.

The Grand Marshal for the 2013 parade will be Denise Melton and the House of Hope.

The winning theme chosen from entries in the annual “Name Our Parade” contest is “The Heart of Christmas,” submitted by CMC employee Vickie Schulze. “We would like to thank everyone who participated and provided entries for the parade theme,” said Billy Loggins, city marketing director.

This year, there are several other events of interest that will take place before the parade. The always popular Breakfast Rotary Club Annual Chili Cook-Off will be held at the Depot. Contact George Marlow, cell number 931-260-8546, or by email georgemarlow@yahoo.com for details.

The TAD Center Reindeer Run will take place at 9 a.m. For additional information, contact Shane Wyatt at 456-2859.

Cumberland Medical Center will partner with Flowers Bakery to hand out free hot chocolate and snack cakes from the courthouse lawn the before and during the Christmas Parade.

The “Downton Abbey” premier will start at 1:30 at the Palace. You are invited to join WCTE-TV for afternoon tea, followed by a Free Premier Screening Party and then a “sneak peak” of the intrigue and drama of the Downton Abbey screening of the first hour of the new season! Dressing in period costume is optional but encouraged (WWI, 1920s era). Tickets are free but you must have one to attend. For more ticket information, call the Palace Theatre at 484-6133.

For more information, you may go to the city’s website at www.crossvilletn.gov or contact the Palace Theatre at 484-6133.
