Christmas Parade returns to downtown Newnan in December


From Special Reports

After a year’s absence, the Newnan Christmas Parade is set to return next month.

The 2020 edition of the Newnan Christmas Parade was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s back on the schedule for 2021 and will take place on Saturday, December 11 at 6 p.m.

This year’s theme will be a Parade of Lights. Retired Newnan Police Chief D.L. “Buster” Meadows will serve as the Grand Marshal for the 2021 parade, which is hosted by the city of Newnan. Chief Meadows, who retired in late June 2021, had a long and successful 48-year career with the Newnan Police Department, including 19 of those years as chief.

 “The parade is an exciting event in the city during the holiday season, and we are so excited to bring back this annual tradition after switching up the holiday cheer last year due to the pandemic,” Ashley Copeland, communications manager for the City of Newnan. “Last year, in lieu of the parade, we created the Santa Express on the city trolley which was a huge success, but we are excited to invite everyone back to downtown Newnan to continue to annual tradition this year.”

The route for this year’s parade will be slightly different than in years past. This year, the parade will move north on Greenville Street, turn left (west) at North Court Square, then make another left (south) onto LaGrange Street.
