Eyes were all aglow in downtown Waynesville as more than 100 lighted floats paraded through the streets throwing candy and cheer. This annual parade brings the community together in holiday spirit and is made possible by local business volunteering their time to build floats. Some floats featured fire, others Christmas lights, and others large blow up snowmen and other festive decorations. The creativity was endless for the 2017 Waynesville Christmas Parade and here are a few of our favorite shots. If you missed the event, you can see the whole parade via live video on our Facebook Page. Canton’s Christmas Parade will be this Thursday December 7th at 6pm with a tree lighting at 5pm.
