The 2023 Hartselle Christmas Parade Dec. 14 saw a record number of entries and spectators alike.
“The Hartselle Kiwanis Christmas Parade is growing every year and brings out the best in our community,” said Marianthe Snyder, president of the Hartselle Kiwanis Club, which organizes the parade each year. “It’s our community supporting our youth through Hartselle Kiwanis while celebrating the best of the holiday season. We are blessed.”
Out of the many floats, three were judged to be the best, winning cash prizes from the club:
First place: It’s Your Day; second place: Hartselle Utilities, with two floats in the parade and third Place: Gobble Fite Lumber Company
DiamondPro sponsored this year’s parade, and limited-edition parade t-shirts are still available through Hartselle Kiwanis and at Robin’s Nest on Main Street.
