Meadows of Dan Christmas Parade

Nov 25

3 PM - MEADOWS OF DAN – With Thanksgiving festivities over by the end of the week, many people will begin preparations for Christmas. Ringing in the winter holiday, the Meadows of Dan Community Association will host its sixth annual Christmas parade Nov. 25 at 3 p.m. Organizers see it as the perfect opportunity for families and friends to gather together in a central location to officially welcome the start of the season. “I believe that folks keep coming because most families are in town for the Thanksgiving holiday,” said Trinity Goad, association president. “It’s something for them to do together and it’s just a nice event.” After filling their bellies on Thursday and shopping ‘til they drop on Friday, the event gives residents of Patrick County and the surrounding area an opportunity to slow down and enjoy an evening with neighbors and loved ones. “It is a great way to kickoff the season because it is a limited time frame until Christmas and I believe that a Christmas parade really gets things going for the spirit and the mood for the season,” Goad said. As in years past, there’s no theme and no admission fee for those wanting to take part in the procession. “Each year, we actually stay away from a theme just to make sure that everyone feels that they are welcome to participate,” Goad said. “That way no one has to go through a lot of process to accommodate a themed event.” For those interested in walking the route or entering a float, all that’s required is a parade application, available by contacting Goad right up to the day of the event. “There isn't a deadline for parade applications,” Goad said. “If people want to be in the parade and they have not filled out an application, then they can still participate. We line up at 2 p.m. on Light Ridge Road.” This year’s Grand Marshall will be Brenda Quesinberry, whom the association president called “a pillar in our community and a great asset to Patrick County.” Quesinberry, who faced a scary bout with acute myeloid lymphoma earlier in the year, is on the road to what doctors anticipate will be a full recovery. The parade will follow the same route as in years past. The official line up and starting point will take place on Light Ridge Road, then the parade will continue down Bypass 58 toward the business district. The procession will end on Squirrel Spur Road.
