Chamblee, GA, December 11, 2016 – by Trey Benton – The first ever Holiday Parade in Chamblee was held Sunday, a parade made possible through a collaborative effort between Plaza Fiesta and the City of Chamblee. Hundreds of community members lined the route and created the cheerful and festive atmosphere.
“It was great to see such a large turnout for the first ever Christmas parade in Chamblee,” Mayor Eric Clarkson told The Post. “I have no doubt that this will become an annual event that will continue to grow in popularity.”
Beginning at St. Pius X School, floats and displays from local businesses and organizations, the Chamblee Charter High School AJROTC, the Cross Keys High School Marching Band, the St. Pius X High School Marching Band, all made their way along the near mile long route down Plaster Rd. to Plaza Fiesta on Buford Hwy.
Attendees were able to grab up treats and specials to local businesses that were tossed out along the way, in typical parade fashion.
Judging by the success of this inaugural event, and with the goal being to create an annual holiday tradition, the Chamblee Holiday Parade will surely be something look forward to as it grows year after year.
