The City of Clanton held its annual Christmas parade and tree lighting event in downtown on Dec. 8. While the event was postponed a week later due to inclement weather on Dec. 1, that did not deter the crowd from coming out to see the lengthy parade and the tree lighting event at Clanton Corner Park afterwards. The tree lighting event featured carnival rides and games, vendors, food vendors and live entertainment as the streets were filled with residents throughout the night.
