The Whitesville Christmas Parade will take place on Dec. 11, beginning at Whitesville Lumber and ending at the City Park. The parade will commence at 10 a.m. and feature a wide array of floats, classic cars, horses, bands, and Santa Claus. 

The parade has been a constant in Whitesville for more than 35 years, and Mayor Patsy Mayfield attributes that to the many volunteers and people that make the event “special.”

“We want everyone to get into the Christmas spirit and come together as a community and enjoy our parade,” Mayfield said. “Our goal is to enhance the parade every year, and the only way we can accomplish that is through our volunteers and the citizens and businesses that participate.”

This year’s grand marshall is Bryce Roberts, a longtime teacher, coach, and mentor to many in the Whitesville area. Organizers will award prizes at the conclusion of the parade. 

“Everyone knows Coach Roberts for his love for sports, and he’s an all-around great guy,” Mayfield said.

The Daviess County Sheriff’s Office along with the Whitesville Fire Department will lead the parade.

Mayfield said that KY 54 would be closed from Durinda Street to Oak Street during the parade. 

The Whitesville Lions Club has sponsored the event for several years. To enter the parade or for more information, contact committee chair Sandy Fitzgerald at 303-981-3611 or Lewis Jean at 270-929-0724. 

“We hope to make this a memorable Christmas parade,” Mayfield said. “We hope all can come out and enjoy.”
