The Mansfield Chamber of Commerce met on Thursday afternoon and discussed plans for the upcoming Christmas Parade. The date is set for December 1, the first Saturday of the month.
Chamber members are discussing a change up in the annual tradition. Mayor Mike Gipson suggested adding a tree lighting ceremony, with businesses and churches sponsoring the event. Initial plans are to begin the festivities around 3 p.m., continue the beans and cornbread tradition, invite vendors and have a tree lighting ceremony to kick off the parade. However, details have yet to be finalized.
Another topic of discussion was the parade itself. One member suggested a parade after dark, and after discussing some of the logistics, it was decided to seek the opinion of the community. A definitive decision will be made at the meeting in October.
So, what’s your opinion?
