Christmas In Dixie – The 2016 Mechanicsville Christmas Parade

The 2016 Hattiesburg Jaycees Christmas Parade theme will be “A Christmas in Toyland”. The parade will be held on Thursday, December 1st, at 6 PM and will directly precede the Downtown Christmas Tree Lighting in Town Square Park. The day will most likely be cloudy and chilly, but we’re not going to let that dampen our spirits!

Key Takeaways:

  • The day of the 2016 Mechanicsville Rotary/Ruritan Christmas Parade was cloudy and chilly, but it did not dampen the enthusiasm of the crowds who gathered to usher in Christmas in the small town just east of Richmond.
  • The parade is a popular tradition, with over 100 units participating in the 2 mile route, which is lined with crowds of spectators.
  • We were honored this year to once again have the Edmund Ruffin Fire-Eaters Camp #3000 Color Guard, under the leadership of Commander Joe Wright, lead our unit, joined by Greg Randall as Stonewall Jackson.
