If you're still having a hard time getting in to the holiday spirit, good news, it's still very early.  I mean, Rudolph and Charlie Brown have only been on TV once this season.  There's still a lot of time to catch up.

One good way is to join your friends and family for the Annual Johnson City Holiday Parade, Thursday, December 1st at 7 p.m. until approximately 8:30 p.m. in downtown Johnson City.

The area's only night time parade will be held rain or snow, featuring lighted floats, marching bands, local celebrities and that familiar guy in the red suit with a sleigh full of toys. Ho Ho Ho.

The parade route begins near Your Home Public Library on Main Street and will wrap up on the Arch Street Bridge in Johnson City.  There will be no parking on Main Street in Johnson City beginning at 5:30 p.m. to prepare for the parade.

If you're going to the parade, there will be parking in some of the downtown Johnson City municipal lots and on nearby side streets.  Thousands usually come out for this festive occasion, so you might want to come early for all the fun.
