Special to Iredell Free News
Applications are now being accepted to participate in Troutman’s 6th annual Christmas Parade.
The parade will be held on Saturday, December 3, at 11 a.m. The route will be the same as in previous years; it will start at Career Academy and Technical School (350 Old Murdock Road) and travel along Eastway Drive, ending at Troutman Baptist Church (305 Perry Road).
The parade is sponsored by D.R. Horton.
Visit www.troutmannc.gov for participant application (located under Parks and Recreation documents and News tab) or email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
Parade organizers will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program. They are in need of toys for all ages of children (but usually have more difficulty getting toys for children ages 12 years and up.) A trailer to collect the toys will travel behind Santa in the parade.
Organizers are also parade-goers to donate new, unwrapped toys for the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program as the trailer comes by them on the parade route. Please bring toys to the parade and give them to those with the trailer or bring them to Town Hall (400 North Eastway Drive) anytime between now and December 3.
