Christmas parades roll through town
Christmas spirit rolled down Highway 31 on Saturday in the form of two Christmas parades, in Jemison and Thorsby.
Jemison’s parade began first, at 2 p.m., beginning at Jemison High School and crawling to Jemison First Baptist Church.
Children and adults alike lined both sides of the highway waving at parade participants and gathering up candy that hit the road.
Thorsby’s parade began at 4:30 p.m. at the town’s old sewing factory.
The event, like Jemison’s, featured a marching band, pageant queens, rescue vehicles with lights blazing, politicians, children, flashy vehicles…and lots of candy.
