NEWNAN, Ga. -- It's going to be a "Merry Musical Christmas" in Newnan when the annual Christmas parade rolls into the city on Sunday, Dec. 2.

"We are looking forward to the parade this year. It's always an anticipated activity for the city," city of Newnan spokeswoman Gina Snider said in a statement. "Christmas is a very special time, and it is fun to help spread the Christmas cheer. To the delight of all the kids, Santa Claus is coming to town!"

The city is now accepting float applications for the parade. This year's theme is Merry Musical Christmas, and participants are encouraged to incorporate holiday songs into their floats.

A $150 prize will be awarded to the best floats in each group: large business, small business, church/school and civic/nonprofit. Newnan residents will vote for the people's choice winner on Facebook; the creators of the honored float will receive a plaque.

The deadline to apply for the parade is Monday, Nov. 26. Entry is $35. Learn more and download an application at ci.newnan.ga.us.

The Newnan Christmas Parade will begin at 3 p.m. on Dec. 2. The parade route begins at Temple Avenue Park and travels on Jackson and LaGrange streets before ending at Newnan High School.

Proceeds from the parade will benefit the Mayors' Christmas Motorcade.
