Due to possible inclement weather, the Sulphur Springs Lions Club Lighted Christmas Parade Presented by Carriage House Manor will be moved from Friday, December 7th to Monday, December 10th at 7 p.m.
As the city lights go out, the parade entries, which are required to be lit up with working Christmas lights, will bring Christmas cheer to those lining the parade route on Monday.
This year the Lions will continue their partnership with the Hopkins County Law Enforcement Association and the Sulphur Springs Law Enforcement Association to collect toys for the Blue Santa Program. Blue Santa collects and distributes toys to needy children in Hopkins County. The Help Blue Santa Build His Float project is an effort to collect toys to kick-off the annual Blue Santa Toy Drive. The Hopkins County Law Enforcement Association will have an empty truck in front of the county Courthouse and will enter an empty trailer into the parade. The community is encouraged to bring a toy or a financial gift to the parade to donate to the Blue Santa Program. Donations can be made either on the truck in front of the Courthouse or will be picked up along the parade route and placed on the empty trailer.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the City of Sulphur Springs is attempting to move their activities scheduled for Friday to Monday as well.
