Holly Jolly parade, market is Dec. 15

The 2023 Holly Jolly Lighted Christmas Parade will take flight Dec. 15 with festive floats and brightly decorated vehicles traveling from the schools past the courthouse square to Williamson-Zebulon Road and then to County Farm Road and ending at the Pike County Community Center where the Holly Jolly Market will be held from 5 to 10 p.m. The high school theater group will perform songs from their upcoming musical.

“We will have a huge variety of craft vendors and food trucks. Santa will be coming in to do pictures and the Grinch will also be running around causing mischief,” said Recreation Authority assistant Victoria Bryan.

The parade will start at 7 p.m. and feature Pike County’s Joy Walker as grand marshal. She was the first female pilot for Delta Airlines and in her honor, all proceeds from the parade fees will be split between the Kiwanis and the Lion’s Club.

“Joy has donated much of her time to these two wonderful civic clubs and the Pike County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to be able to support them in this way. Anyone can sign up for the parade up until the day before, Dec. 14 at 5 p.m.,” said Chamber of Commerce executive director Meredith Maddox. “As a chamber we want to work with the Parks and Recreation Authority to host an amazing event and parade for our community and the Community Center at the recreation fields has much more space than the downtown area.”
