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 6 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!

The Spirit of Christmas continues with a Community Celebration at Cambridge Square. Come celebrate with local music, local shopping, hot chocolate, warm food, FREE pictures with Santa, and a special presentation from your favorite snow princesses.
This year we are partnering with the Samaritan Center to spread the joy of the season with everyone. Help Santa this year by bringing a toy for the Samaritan Center toy drive. This will help ensure that everyone in our community will have a great Christmas.
