Kannapolis’ Christmas Parade Returns Saturday
An odd thing happened just now. I was sitting here trying to come up with the words to talk about the Kannapolis Christmas Parade returning this Saturday. I written about countless parades and attending/participated in more than you can imagine. I had nothing. And then a wave came over me. I was thinking about this past year. It has been one of profound personal loss. I’ve tried to compartmentalize a lot I’m afraid. And that’s not a healthy thing. More than I have in a while, I think I need some Christmas spirit and magic. If you feel as if you’re in the same boat, The Kannapolis Christmas Parade may be just the ticket.
There’s something special about seeing a town come together in spirit and celebration during the holidays. There really is. See for yourself as this Saturday at 6 p.m., the Kannapolis Christmas Parade travels down Laureate Way and West Avenue with more than 130 entries, 9 bands, Christmas lights, decorations and more Christmas spirit than your soul can handle.
And when I say Christmas lights, I’m talking about THOUSANDS of colorful lights adorning parade entries making the Kannapolis Christmas Parade a must not miss holiday evening event this Saturday beginning at 6pm. Oh, and did I mention a certain famous yuletide toymaker will be a part of the grand finale? Bring the whole family to Kannapolis this Saturday evening. Find your Christmas spirit and soothe your soul. You know you can sure use it.
