A Christmas parade in Homer is planned on Saturday to kick off the holiday season.

The parade will be held at 3 p.m. There will also be hot chocolate and games in the park in downtown Homer.

Other Christmas events are planned in towns during December, including in Alto, Lula, Baldwina and Maysville.


The Town of Alto will host its annual Christmas Tree Lighting event beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5, at the new municipal complex.


The annual Christmas in the Park in Lula event will be held from 4-8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7.

The City of Lula along with the Lula Belton Historical Society invites everyone to be a part of the celebration. “We would like to have as many businesses, churches and organizations represented as possible,” leaders state. “This is a wonderful way for the community to recognize your interest in our city and show fellowship during this festive season.”

If you decide you will be a part of this celebration you can set up a table to give away snack foods, non-alcoholic drinks, trinkets, etc. That is for you to decide depending on your budget and time spent in preparation. The City of Lula will provide tables. You will need to provide your own canopy/tent if you desire one. The tables should be set up by 3:30 p.m. There is no charge for the booth space.
