From Matt Smith, the organizer of the Reidsville Christmas Parade…
It’s time once again for the sound of marching bands the dance troupes and the hearty HO-HO-HO of Santa Claus as his helpers once again bring in the Christmas season for Reidsville and Rockingham County. This year’s parade steps off Saturday, November 21st, starting at 6:30pm, and promises to be a celebration to remember. With the Market Square Park completed and the streets spiffed up, Reidsville will be dressed in its holiday finest for the occasion.
The theme of the parade this year is “A CRUISIN’ CHRISTMAS”. We will have a number of classic cars dressed for the season in the parade, and 50’s-60’s themes for
the units are more than welcome.
Two additional performance places have been established . . . In front of Pennrose Mall and the intersection of Richardson and South Scales Streets, in addition to the usual intersection of South Scales and Gilmer (where the TV cameras are).
If you can’t make it to Reidsville on Saturday night, you’ll be able to watch it on WGSR-TV (Star News). You can watch LIVE! on cable (Danville Comcast Channel 17 or Chatmoss Channel 14), over the air on digital channel 47.1 or LIVE! streaming video at their website. Mark Childrey & Ken Echols will start the TV coverage at 7PM.
Folks, this is a parade that you have to see. It’s going to be terrific and you”ll be glad you saw it.
