Downtown Douglasville was all aglow Friday night, not from just the colorful floats and spectacle of lights, but from the smiles of excited people who came out to enjoy the city’s annual Christmas Parade.
Aptly named the “Sights and Sounds of Christmas,” this year offered a new feature to the annual parade and tree lighting event with a Christmas Family selected by Mayor Rochelle Robinson, who rode with her in a sleigh along the parade route.
This year’s first Christmas Family was Robert “Austin Sewell and his wife, Tracey, along with their nine children ages ranging from 3 weeks to age 20.
The event also featured live reindeer from Pettit Creek Farms in Cartersville, dancers including the Grinch, Santa and a whole more.
