Newport Christmas Parade
Be sure to celebrate the holidays with the annual Newport Christmas parade on December 14th from 3 to 5 PM. Beginning at Debbie's Drive-In, at the corner of West Broadway and Hedrick Drive, the parade will delight children and adults alike as it travels through downtown Newport on its way to Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church. The theme this year is "Your Christmas Journey". "We hope we can emphasize to our community the importance of the 2020 Census and the need for everyone to be counted. The Bible tells us a decree went out that all the world should be taxed. And with that, Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem began. For participants in the Newport Christmas Parade, we ask that you tell us “Your Christmas Journey”, says Chamber Executive Director Lynn Ramsey. Some ideas to get you started: • Your journey to meet family for the holidays • Santa’s journey around the world • The journey to find the perfect gift • A Polar Express journey • Dashing through the snow journey Awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Overall Entry, Best Non-profit and Mayor’s Choice will be given. Applications are available at The application deadline is Dec 6. Contact: Cocke County Partnership Chamber of Commerce, Lynn Ramsey or Jennifer Ellison........423-623-7201
