The 2017 Christmas Parade is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2, at two o’clock.

According to Wanda Thompson, administrative assistant at the chamber, this year’s new date is a result of trying to give the parade a resurgence in the number of floats entered.

“We’ve been listening to the people in Grenada, and what we’re trying to do is get the numbers back up,” Thompson said. “We’re going to try this, and we’re asking everyone to be a part of this.”
