Each of these heroes will be recognized on our Facebook page for their involvement and commitment to the community leading up to the parade. Be sure to check out the posts and thank your local heroes for everything that they do!
Parking for the Christmas Parade will be available at the following locations: Goodlettsville City Hall, Goodlettsville Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Goodlettsville Middle School, Goodlettsville Church of Christ, and First Baptist Church Goodlettsville.
