Newnan Christmas Parade postponed until Thursday, Dec. 16


From Staff Reports

After a year’s absence, the Newnan Christmas Parade will have to wait five more days before returning to the streets.

The 2021 version was scheduled to take place tomorrow (Saturday, Dec. 11), but the forecast of inclement weather has postponed the event until Thursday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. Parade lineup begins at 5 p.m. The latest forecast from the National Weather Service in Peachtree City has a fast-moving cold front with potentially strong storms passing through the area tomorrow about the time the parade was slated to start. 

The 2020 edition of the Newnan Christmas Parade was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

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 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.
