This Week in Booneville
A family loved tradition for many is gathering up and down the street of Booneville to enjoy the annual Christmas Parade. The parade is a kick start to the Holiday season in Booneville. The parade fills the streets with happy face, hot chocolate and Christmas cheer. Immediately after the parade, Booneville Main Street will be hosting a Christmas Tree Lighting, Cookies with Santa, Christmas Carols, and Carriage Rides downtown. There will be a special surprise from above during the tree lighting so make sure you join the fun downtown. The Parade is set for December 2nd. Line up will begin at the Boulevard at 4:30 and will start at 6. Special thank you to Acco Brands, Booneville Community Pharmacy, and Hill Family Eye Center for their sponsorship for the event.
