City Makes Plans for Annual Christmas Celebration

The annual Christmas parade will be in just a few weeks, on Dec. 1. Applications for parade participants are available.

The city's annual Christmas parade winds down Main Street on Dec. 1, 2012.

The parade begins at 10 a.m. at First Baptist Church and heads to the city's park, where Santa's elf will parachute down for the grand finale about 11 a.m.

Bryan Shepard, the owner and operator of the Lilburn Chick-Fil-A, will be this year's Grand Marshal. Marching bands will be featured, along with more than 100 decorated floats, tractors, and classic cars.

Attendees will also be able to take free photos with Santa in the park and enjoy music, children’s activities and refreshments that can be purchased.

It is sponsored by the city of Lilburn and the Lilburn Business Association.

Want to Participate?

Applications for parade participants are available at www.lilburnparade.com. This year each parade group is asked to donate either $35 or one can of food per participant.

Lilburn Business Association is hosting a "Battle of the Bands" with the local high schools to see who can raise the most cans. Each school will have a designated drop-off date at the Lilburn Co-op. The band with the most cans will win a cash prize for their program.

Saturday is the perfect time to take a minute and check out 2 local owned businesses by the park during the parade. Main Street Market and Old Town Flowers and Gifts are your neighbors and both have a wide variety of unique gifts for everyone
