Parade-goers will need to bundle up Saturday evening for the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce’s Twilight Christmas Parade.

Early forecasts project temperatures in the low 40s for the annual parade, which is themed “All Creatures Great and Small: Celebrate One and All. The parade will begin at 5 p.m. this Saturday, Dec. 4 from Atmore City Hall and will end at Escambia County High School.

The first of two mandatory safety meetings will be held at 5 p.m. tonight, Nov. 30 at the Atmore Area YMCA.

“Safety is of foremost concern as it is a night time parade,” Chamber Office Manager Shelly Williams said. “That is why we have these mandatory safety meetings.”

A second meeting will be held at 5 p.m. on Dec. 2. Each entry is required to have a representative attend one of the two meetings to discuss parade safety rules.

All float participants should be in line by 3:30 p.m.

Walgreens (gold sponsor) and David’s Catfish House (silver sponsor) are sponsors of this year’s parade. Atmore Animal Hospital and Lee Veterinary Clinic are the two Partners of the Parade. Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union is the 2010 Corporate Partner.
