Aberdeen, Amory host Christmas parades
Droves of people lined Amory’s Main Street Monday, Dec. 3 for the town’s annual Christmas parade. Horses, car clubs, dance school
s and civic clubs were amongst the company
of floats to commemorate the Christmas season. Even though temperatures were unseasonably warm, the parade still brought out the festive spirit for the crowd.
Aberdeen’s Christmas parade was originally scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 4, but a weather system
dumping much-needed rain on the area dampened the plans. Hours later, the Chamber of Commerce rescheduled the parade for Monday, Dec. 10, a night that posed more wintry weather.
Bundled in jackets and standing in line for free hot chocolate from Pioneer Community Hospital, Aberdeen’s crowd was treated to a parade escorted in by the Aberdeen Police Department and Monroe County Sheriff’s Department.
Several children represented daycares
from across town for the parade, which included floats by Robin’s Unique Boutique, Tenn Tom Moving Youth, Inc. and the Junior Women’s League. A few individuals entered their cars in the parade along with music by the Aberdeen High School and Shivers Middle School bands. The Grinch made an appearance, along with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus in a horse-drawn carriage to round out the parade.
