As the season of giving approaches, the Sulphur Springs Lions are preparing for a spectacular Christmas Light Parade.
The thirteenth annual Sulphur Springs Lions Club Lighted Christmas Parade presented by Carriage House Manor will be held in Buford Park on the evening of Friday, December 4th at 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM. As the sky darkens, the festively illuminated parade entries will bring Christmas cheer to the viewers along the parade route.
This year, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the parade route will be changed. The Lions are calling this a reverse parade, in which the float entries stay stationary and the public will drive through and look at the floats. Enter Buford Park at League St and Connally, you will go west into Buford Park, turn south at Buford Circle and exit back onto League St near the skate park. Floats will line up along the outside of the circle, giving the viewers an opportunity to look out the passenger windows at the Christmas festivities. The reverse parade will be open for one hour and 30 minutes between 6:30 PM and 8:00pm.
The Lions Club would like to give a special thanks to Carriage House Manor for, once again, being the title sponsor of the parade. Other parade sponsors include Alliance Bank, City National Bank, Farmers Electric Cooperative, Legacy Ag Credit, Brian Toliver Ford, Farm County, Nor-Tex Tractor and Saputo.
Entry forms for the Lighted Christmas Parade can be picked up at any of sponsor location or the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce. The deadline to enter the parade is Tuesday, December 1st.
