Annual Christmas Parade to be held Thursday 

Special to the Enquirer

Organizers say there’s still time to register for the 2023 Hartselle Christmas Parade, to be held Dec. 14 at 7 p.m. in downtown Hartselle. 

Limited edition parade t-shirts are being sold at Robin’s Nest on Main Street and will be available for sale the day of the parade at the Depot. The theme of the parade, organized by the Hartselle Kiwanis Club and sponsored by DiamondPro, is “Visions of Christmas.” 

New this year is the inclusion of the Marine Toys for Tots program. Collection boxes for new, unwrapped toy donations will be located at the two downtown gazebos by the Depot and just west of Life Church. Volunteers with Toys for Tots and the Hartselle High School Key Club will be collecting monetary donations along the route. 

Seasonal music will be played at the Depot gazebo prior to the start of the parade.  

Thousands of spectators typically crowd downtown streets for the parade, and city officials urge attendees to come prepared for parking.  

No parking will be allowed on Railroad Street from Hickory Street SW to Main Street and on Main Street from Railroad Street SW to Corsbie Street, starting at 4 p.m. Dec. 14. This is to ensure the safety of those involved in the parade procession as well as spectators.  

Several parking lots are available for spectators – including the public lots behind the shops on Main Street, the lot just west of Life Church and the lot behind the former Post Office, accessible from Chestnut and Sycamore streets. Parking is also available at the Hartselle Farmers Market, as well as at Hartselle First Methodist Church. 

Traffic and parking will reopen following the end of the parade.
