Lineup Of Floats,

Bands On Sunday

Greeneville's own Allen Johnson and his Mopar-powered Pro Stock car will be featured in the Greeneville Christmas Parade this Sunday, beginning at 2 p.m. on North Main Street and traveling through downtown Greeneville.

Johnson and the J&J Racing Team, which includes his father, Roy "Rooster" Johnson, were recently crowned the 2012 NHRA Drag Racing Series Pro Stock World Champions.

The parade is a project of the Greene County Partnership and is being coordinated by the Greeneville Exchange Clubs.

This year's parade will feature seven bands, one from each of the local high schools and the Greeneville Middle School, as well as from Tusculum College.

Participants must have a permit in order to enter the staging area on Bohannon Avenue the day of the parade.

All floats entering the competition will be judged prior to the parade and should arrive at the parade area by 12:30 p.m. Judging will be held promptly at 1 p.m.

Categories for competition include commercial floats, civic/school organization floats and church floats.

Prizes of $100, $50 and $25, will be awarded in each division to the units judged first, second and third in overall appearance, respectively.

Winning float entries will be expected to provide individuals to carry the winning banners in the parade.

Exchange Club representatives will collect the banners at Greeneville High School after the parade and present prize money to the winning entries.

Lineup for all other participants in the parade will begin at 1 p.m.

All feeder streets to Bohannon Avenue will be blocked with the exception of Burns Street, off the U.S. 11E Bypass, which will be the only entrance for all participants.

The parade will advance from Bohannon to Main Street, move along Main to McKee Street, and turn left on McKee. From McKee, the parade will turn left onto College Street and proceed to Greeneville High School, where it will disperse.

All parade participants are reminded that no one in the parade will be allowed to throw candy or other items into the crowd.

Those who choose to distribute such items must do so through individuals handing the items to the crowd as they walk along the parade route.

All entries in the parade should be decorated using the parade theme, "Deck The Halls," and no entries can feature Santa Claus.

There will be only one Santa in the parade -- the Santa on the fire truck at the end of the parade.

For more information, call the Partnership at 638-4111.
