The Nacogdoches Lighted Christmas parade is coming up Saturday December 1st. This year they have made a few improvements, the one big thing is the awards. Winners will be announced at the end of the parade. Then they will be notified to go to the parade main stage.

Parade starts at 6:30pm sharp and the parade route winds around the brick streets downtown. Local celebrities are usually MCing the parade from various points along the route. But I will be nice and toasty warm. Waving at you. To be in the parade, or get more details, just email christmasparadenac@outlook.com

So just remember when you are out there freezing cold I will be nice and toasty with my thermos full of coffee. I wonder if I should warm it up. Santa will be waving at the end. Going to be cold so bundle up! After the parade we are going to watch a fireworks display so stick around!

This is all a part of the Nine Flags Nacogdoches Christmas Festival. The them this year is I'll be home for Christmas. The festival actually starts Saturday at 1pm, and goes till 10pm. There will be vendor booths set up selling food and lots more. Check out their Facebook page for details. CLICK HERE.

    Bad Weather Can Ruin The Fun

    Last year, the Nine Flags Lighted Christmas Parade was pushed back due to rain, and some have been canceled all together.

    Either way it goes down, the air will be chilly than we are used to so go ahead and bring a jacket or blanket.

    When it actually happens

    People seem to go all out, decorating their floats or personal vehicles, and there's been no sign of anyone slowing down on the creative ways they can bring smiles to the onlookers.

    A good mix of mainstay of traditional sights will be there too, so there's a little bit of everything.
