The Town of Cooleemee will host its annual Christmas parade at  2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 16.

The parade will begin at Cooleemee Elementary School at 136 Marginal St. and end at the Zachary House at 131 Church St.

Families will gather on the grounds of the Zachary House after the parade for music, stories, fellowship, and free food. Bring your S’Mores sticks and enjoy roasting marshmallows by the fire.

Of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand for a chat and pictures with the children.

Want to enter a float, car, bike, or walk in the parade? Simply show up at the school beginning at 1 p.m. to join in the fun. There is no fee, and pre-registration isn’t necessary.
