The City of Newnan’s annual Christmas parade will be held Saturday, December 10th, beginning at 6:00 p.m. The theme is “Songs of Christmas” so bring on your holiday songs!  The parade will include floats, walking groups, decorated cars and trucks, and marching bands. 

The parade will travel north on LaGrange Street, turn right onto North Court Square, right onto East Court Square and then end at the Coweta County Justice Center on Greenville Street. If you are looking for the high school bands they will enter the parade at the intersection of LaGrange and Gilbert Street.

“We are looking forward to the parade this year. It’s always an anticipated activity for the city.  Christmas is a very special time, and it is fun to help spread the Christmas cheer.  To the delight of all the kids, Santa Claus is coming to town!” said Gina Snider, city of Newnan, public information officer.
