Date, theme set for Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas parade

ONEIDA, Tenn. — Through the eyes of a child.

That will be the theme of the 2016 Scott County Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade, which will march through the streets of Oneida on the afternoon of Saturday, Dec. 3.

While the parade’s fine details are still being sorted out, entries are already being accepted. The parade will step off from its traditional lineup location — the parking lot of HBD Industries on Industrial Lane — at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3.

The parade will turn left onto Industrial Lane and continue east on Industrial Lane before turning left again onto Alberta Street (U.S. Hwy. 27). From there, the parade will travel north on Alberta Street to Traffic Light No. 5, where it will turn right onto Claude Terry Drive before disbanding in the parking lot at Oneida Elementary School.

Application forms for parade entries can be downloaded, printed and returned to the Chamber of Commerce’s offices at the Scott County Visitor Center on U.S. Hwy. 27 in Huntsville. Blank forms can also be picked up at the visitor center Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The deadline for submitting completed applications is Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 5 p.m.

In the event of inclement weather, the parade will be held Sunday, Dec. 4, at 3 p.m.
