The 30th annual Suntrust Dickens of a Christmas will continue on December 14th beginning at 6pm!

The parade will start at 6:30pm at the intersection of Elm Avenue and Jefferson Street and will travel the same route as previous years on Jefferson, then turning onto Campbell Avenue, past Market Square.
