Here is another Christmas parade post! This time its the Anniston Christmas Parade along Noble Street in downtown Anniston. The parade had the Ohatchee, White Plains, Wellborn, and Anniston marching bands. The parade also had The Donoho School and Faith Christian School featured. The parade also had plenty of great floats, an Michael Jackson impersonator, an Elf impersonator, and much more!
Each year, the City of Gadsden puts on a major Christmas light show at Noccalula Falls Park. Enjoy riding the train or stroll through the park and experience the lights and sounds of the season. During your stroll enjoy over a million lights, the Christmas Story, photos with Santa (until Christmas), cookies decorating, sipping hot chocolate, visit the petting zoo, Christmas ornament decorations, and more!
Once again, it’s becoming a trend. I was the only media person covering the Oxford Christmas Parade. This parade featured the Oxford and Anniston marching bands, many floats, and a really good crowd despite a really cold night. Enjoy the video and pictures below!
Each Christmas season, the Birmingham Zoo puts on their own Christmas light show called Zoolight Safari. There are over one million lights at the zoo, and you can enjoy a ride on the zoo train, slide down a 100 foot Yuletide Slide, ride the Santa Rollers, and enjoy some music and entertainment.
Below are pictures from the event I took! The lights are on from 5-9 pm during weekends before and after Christmas. Learn more at: https://www.birminghamzoo.com
Each Christmas season, the Heart Of Dixie Railroad Museum allows people of all ages to ride to the North Pole on the North Pole Express. Families with children board the train and the travel down the tracks to see Santa Claus. Everyone gets to enjoy chocolate milk, cookies, sing Christmas carols, listen to Christmas stories and receive a Christmas gift.
So, I traveled down to the North Pole and took video and pictures of the train leaving the station, arriving at the North Pole, Santa entering then leaving the train, the train leaving the North Pole, and the train arriving back at the station. The families and kids all had smiles on their faces!
If you want to take part in this for the 2017 Christmas season, tickets go on sale in July. And yes, they sell out quickly! To learn more about the North Pole Express go to: https://www.hodrrm.org Enjoy the video and pictures!
