As the season of giving approaches, the Sulphur Springs Lions are preparing for a spectacular Christmas Light Parade.
The 12th annual Sulphur Springs Lions Club Lighted Christmas Parade, presented by Carriage House Manor, will be held in downtown Sulphur Springs at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6. 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 construction on Connally Street, the parade route will begin at Buford Park and head east on Houston Street to Church Street. Then, the parade will turn south (right) on Church Street, wind around the west side of Celebration Plaza, and end at Tapp Funeral Home on Gilmer Street.
The Lions Club offers special thanks to title sponsor Carriage House Manor as well as sponsors Alliance Bank, City National Bank, Farmers Electric Cooperative, Legacy Ag Credit, Brian Toliver Ford, Farm County, Jay Hodge Chevrolet, Nortex Tractor and Saputo.
Entry forms for the Lighted Christmas Parade can be picked up at any of sponsor location or at the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce, 110 Main St. The deadline to enter the parade is Tuesday, Dec. 3.
