The annual Ooltewah-Collegedale Spirit of Christmas Parade is just around the corner! Be sure to join us on Little Debbie Parkway & Apison Pike on Sunday, December 1 at 3pm!
The parade begins on Little Debbie Parkway at the intersection of Jac Cate Road and heads south to Apison Pike. The route continues east on Apison Pike and then turns north onto Ooltewah-Ringgold Road, ending at Ooltewah Middle School.
To watch the parade, be sure to arrive early, so you can get a great spot along the road. And keep an eye on your children as they are grabbing candy, etc. Let's keep this a safe and fun event for the whole family and the whole community!
Of course, we would love for you to be in the parade, or volunteer to help with organizing it!
