Yes, expect plenty of candy to be handed out when the Advance Christmas Parade kicks off at 10 a.m. Saturday.

But there are more opportunities to be sure no one goes home hungry.

Start the morning with a pancake breakfast from 8-9:30 at Advance First Baptist Church on N.C. 801.

After the parade, go across the road to Advance United Methodist Church where chicken stew and hotdogs will be available. Pictures with “Firefighter Santa” can be made there.

To enter the parade, just show up by 9 a.m. at Shady Grove Elementary on Cornatzer Road. There is no fee or entry form, just show up with a family-friendly entry.
