The annual Franklin County Christmas Parade will kick off in Rocky Mount at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8.

The Franklin County High School JROTC Color Guard will lead the way, as the FCHS Eagle Band fills the atmosphere with holiday music, setting the mood for an old-fashioned Christmas parade.

Crowds cheer with excitement as colorful parade floats, community and youth groups, performers, horses, canines and Santa Claus travel through town.

The parade line-up begins on Tanyard Road (near the DMV), travels down South Main Street, turns on Floyd Avenue then continues down Franklin Street to the Rocky Mount Community & Hospitality Center (train depot).

Rain date is Dec. 9.

The parade is hosted by the Rocky Mount Rotary Club.
