MOULTRIE — Many will contend that Christmas is about the children. And that has a lot to do with this year’s Christmas Parade in Moultrie, themed “Through the Eyes of a Child.”

The annual Festival of Lights Christmas Parade will be held in downtown Moultrie Saturday, Dec. 8.

City of Moultrie Main Street Director Amy Johnson said the pre-show will begin at 5 p.m., and the parade itself will begin at 6 p.m.

The pre-show will be held at the Lewis Hill Amphitheater and will feature a variety of entertainment, Johnson said. Performances include the Maripat School of Dance dancers, Downtown Idol 2007 winner William Williamson, Amber Duncan, the Autreyville Baptist Church Children’s Choir and Jana Wiggins.

At the conclusion of the parade pre-show, Johnson said the Christmas parade will begin at First United Methodist Church. The parade will go down First Street Southeast, loop around the courthouse and conclude at First Baptist Church.

Johnson said there will be more than 50 entries in this year’s parade, including bands, floats, cars, dignitaries and children. Santa Claus will ride in at the conclusion of the parade.

Parking will be available around the courthouse square until about 5:30 or 5:45 p.m., Johnson said. The pre-show will be held at the amphitheater this year instead of its usual location at the corner of First Street Southeast and First Avenue Southeast.
