2013 Holiday or Christmas Parades around Chattanooga

2012 Lighted Boat Parade by Brad Snoke
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to everyone. This year, 2013, there are numerous parades for everyone to enjoy. I will admit December 7th seems to be the popular date for parades. Everyone needs to check out the Ooltewah-Collegedale parade this year. They are having a few TV stars to march. The Ooltewah High School band will be fresh from their trip to New York where they marched in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. GO Ooltewah!
