Dazzling Fireworks, Christmas Parade in Nacogdoches This Saturday
THE NINE FLAGS FESTIVAL IS BACK!
TAKE A TOUR THROUGH BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED HOMES
AWESOME PARADE AND DAZZLING FIREWORKS
The Lighted Christmas Parade has been a Nacogdoches tradition for many years. In 2015, the Nacogdoches Area United Way took over the organization of the event. Parade entries come from local businesses, schools, churches, and individuals, and include decorated floats, vehicles, and walking groups. The event culminates with an annual fireworks display south of downtown for all guests to enjoy once the parade has exited the area.
LAST MINUTE GRAND MARSHAL SWITCH
This year's grand marshal was scheduled to be Debbie Humphreys, head volleyball coach at SFA, in recognition of her legendary success in leading the program. However, the SFA Volleyball Team will be playing in a post-season tournament that conflicts with the parade.
Representatives with the Nacogdoches Area United Way are proud to reveal that the new grand marshal will still be flaunting the 'Axe 'em, Jacks' sign. The SFA Football Team, who advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2014, will be leading the parade down the historic brick streets.
Here's a look at some memories from past Christmas Parades in Nacogdoches
