Once Thanksgiving's over, it's time for Christmas parades — here's your list

December is right around the corner, and with it comes Christmas festivities.

Most municipalities in the area have parades or tree-lighting ceremonies to usher in Christmas, and this year promises no shortage of events.

The biggest Christmas parade in the area will march down the streets of Gardendale. This year’s parade is Dec. 5 at 6 p.m.

The theme is “Christmas Around the World” and will focus on adoption.

There are two grand marshalls, which are local families that have adopted children. The Hacker family will represent domestic adoption and the Moody family will represent international adoption.

Businesses or for-profit organizations that are not members of the Greater Gardendale Chamber of Commerce must pay an entry fee of $50. There is no fee for other entries.

The chamber of commerce must receive all fees by Dec. 3. Mail them to P.O. Box 26, Gardendale, AL, 35071.
