There are no fewer than four Christmas parades in the area Saturday, including Hopkinsville’s nighttime event.
Hopkinsville Parks and Recreation Superintendent Tab Brockman says the parade starts at Christian County Middle School at 5:15 pm and winds south on Main Street through downtown Hopkinsville.
There will be several Christmas-themed events all day Saturday in downtown Hopkinsville.
A complete schedule for Saturday can be found on the Hopkinsville Convention and Visitors Bureau Facebook page. Skating on the Square will feature several sessions Friday, Saturday and Sunday and while many of the slots have already been reserved, city officials will allow walk-up skaters on the synthetic ice as space allows.
Meanwhile, Elkton’s Christmas parade is set for 6 p.m. Saturday and will head north from Todd County Central High School on South Main Street toward the Public Square, exiting the Square on West Main Street and ending at the Milliken Memorial Community House. The parade features lighted floats and entries from local businesses, schools and churches.
Guthrie’s Christmas parade is 10 a.m. Saturday with a theme of ‘Blue Christmas’ to honor law enforcement. The downtown parade will be followed by a performance by the Clarksville Northeast High School choir.
Trenton hosts its annual parade along Main Street at 3 p.m. and it will be followed by children’s activities in the community center. Barbara Crouch, a longtime city commissioner who chose not to seek another term, will be the grand marshal.
