South Hill, Chase City parades Sunday

SoVaNow.com / November 28, 2012
The towns of South Hill and Chase City will usher in the holiday season with their annual Christmas parades this Sunday, as both events have attracted a large number of entries from marching bands to parade floats to the jolly old elf himself, Santa Claus.

South Hill goes first as the South Hill Chamber of Commerce/CCB Christmas Parade kicks off at 2 p.m. Parade grand marshal Tommy Arnold will oversee the procession that is expected to include six marching bands, the Amran Hillbillies, Shrine mini-cars, pageant queens and kings, fire and rescue vehicles, parade floats, Santa and much more.

At 6 p.m., Chase City takes its turn in the spotlight as grand marshal Finch Parker leads the festivities. According to Chase City Chamber executive director Braxton Rutledge, four bands have committed to perform in the Chase City parade — from Bluestone High School and Middle School, Randolph-Henry and Park View — and the Hillbillies will bring their brand of down-home fun to town. The Shrine mini-cars also will race down Main Street, and the event has attracted dozens of antique cars and trucks, heavy vehicles, floats and church groups, twirlers and flag wavers, and an assortment of others.

Entries will be accepted to the Chase City parade through Friday, subject to Chamber guidelines for all entries, said Rutledge.

Also this weekend, the Town of Chase City will host the MacCallum More Museum and Gardens Holiday Bazaar. The event will take place Saturday, Dec. 1 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Estes Community Center. Next week, on Tuesday, Dec. 4, MacCallum More will host its annual Illumination at the Gardens, starting at 6 p.m. with the lighting to take place at 6:30.
