The Davie County Chamber of Commerce has announced the theme for the 2015 Christmas Parade, “Plowin’ Thru the Holidays – Celebrating the Farming Heritage of Davie County.”

The Hometown Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday, Nov. 21 beginning at 2 p.m., part of a weekend of special events in Downtown Mocksville to launch the holiday season including “Twas The Night Before Bed Race” on Friday, Nov. 20, the lighting of the oaks and the release of the annual town Christmas ornament.

Entry forms for the Christmas parade and bed race are available at the chamber office at 135 S. Salisbury St. in downtown Mocksville or on the chamber website at  www.daviechamber.com.   

“The Annual Christmas Parade is a wonderful part of the Davie County Christmas traditions,” said Chamber President Carolyn McManamy.  “Each year over 100 businesses, church and civic groups, schools and county or town services participate in the parade. We also invite all bed race participants to be a part of the parade and show off their beds that raced down Main Street the night before.”

Prizes are awarded to the top three parade entries selected by judges with first place receiving $75, second $50 and third $25.
