Fitzgerald Annual Christmas Parade
"The Ugly Christmas Sweater"
The annual Christmas Parade, sponsored by the
Fitzgerald-Ben Hill Co. Chamber of Commerce &
Colony Business Association, will be held
Thursday, December 1st at 6:30 p.m.
Santa will arrive on the fire truck throwing tons of candy. Local businesses, churches, individual and civic organizations, are encouraged to participate and to build colorful floats.
The parade's theme is "The Ugly Christmas Sweater".
We are asking everyone who participates and attends the parade to wear their Ugliest Christmas Sweater.
The person selected as wearing the "Ugliest Christmas Sweater" will win a cash prize.
If you don't have an Ugly Christmas Sweater, check out 2nd hand stores to purchase a sweater you can add your own touch to by using Christmas decorations.
We will be judging the person who is wearing the
"Ugliest Christmas Sweater" after the Christmas Parade
in front of the Grand Theatre.
If you would like to participate in the "Ugliest Christmas Sweater" contest all you have to do is wear your sweater and bring a $5.00 toy or a canned food item.
The toys will be given to Toys for Tots and the canned goods will be given to the Christian Kitchen.
The change to the parade theme is one that we think
fun and bring a lot of smiles from everyone.
Every year we have a great parade with a lot of participation and this year we want
onlookers to be part of the parade.
Give the Chamber a call for the application
