Bowing to safety protocols during the height of the pandemic, the Christmas Parade in Whitehaven had been a no-show since 2019.
Like old times – only better – many said as the parade unfolded amid chilly tempers and the warm hearts of the Whitehaven community and its supporters on Nov. 19
The parade stepped off at Southland Mall at Elvis Presley Blvd. and Shelby Drive, continued down Elvis Presley Blvd., and ended at Laureen Drive.
Joining Whitehaven residents were some who used to call it home, others with varied connections and many just generally in support of the community.
All loved a good parade!
The parade was an element of the multi-day celebration (Nov. 17-19) of I Love Whitehaven week spearheaded by the “I Love Whitehaven” Neighborhood and Business Association.
