Jaycees Announces Details of Saturday’s Christmas Parade | New



The Jaycees have announced registrations and roster procedures for their annual Christmas Parade, which begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, December 4.

“Our theme is ‘Winter Wonderland’ but the weather will be a good price change from previous years with a current forecast of 69 and cloudy; not really winter temperatures, but a great day for a parade, ”said Keenan Sudderth, project president.

There are over 130 entries in the parade, including marching groups, dignitaries, floats, marching bands, vintage cars, new cars and small vehicles.

“We are extremely excited with the turnout this year, we have many new entries and the parade has grown even larger since our return to Alcoa,” said Kelly Kincheloe, Parade Co-Chair.

The parade will begin at McDonald’s in New Midland Plaza. It will cross New Midland Plaza then turn right onto Calderwood Avenue (North Cusick Street in Maryville). At the top of the hill (downtown Maryville) it will turn right onto West Broadway Avenue, then right onto West Lamar Alexander Parkway and end before New Providence Presbyterian Church. The Jaycees expect more than 35,000 spectators in all.

Grand marshal

The Jaycees chose the Blount Partnership as their grand marshal for this year’s parade to spur economic development, including securing several Amazon facilities and relocating Smith & Wesson.

“It’s a way of saying a little thank you for all the behind-the-scenes work they do. I would like to personally thank the Partnership for its commitment to excellence in our community, ”said Sudderth, who is also president of the Blount County Jaycees.

Alignment procedures

All registrations are expected to start lining up at 9 a.m. Saturday at Joule Street or Rankin Road. Parents who drop off their children must do so no later than 10 a.m. at the four-lane stop on Joule Street and Rankin Road; Carrel Street next to the old Alcoa Police Department; or Rankin / Bessemer junction.

The estimated placement of entrances numbered 1 through 15 will be in the East Tennessee Medical Group parking lots at the Joule Street entrance; The 16-45 will be parked on the right side of rue Joule; 46-74 will be on the right side of Rankin Road from the ETMG entrance; 75-94 will line up on the left side of rue Joule; 95-130 will line up on the left side of Rankin Road (the old AUB parking lot will accommodate horse trucks). Joule and Rankin will be one-sided during the roster.

Only dignitaries and official Jaycee vehicles will be allowed to park in the parking lot of the ETMG building. The only vehicles allowed on the Joule and Rankin alignment side are numbered entrances to be on these particular roads. Entrances to Joule must enter from Hall Road turning onto Joule (south end of Walgreens). Entrances numbered to be on Rankin can only enter from Bessemer Street (parking is available at the Rankin / Bessemer intersection on the grounds).

Jaycee officials encourage the groups to assemble at a location close to Rankin or Joule, put all the children on the float, make final preparations, and then proceed cautiously to the line-up area. Parking near the waiting area can be found on Bessemer, opposite the Blackhorse Pub & Brewery. Another good base is the Joule Walgreens intersection.

Anyone trying to access the Knoxville Pediatric Association (KPA) or (ETMG) will enter Joule from Hall Road (next to Walgreens), walk to the four-lane stop, then turn left or right to enter the appropriate establishment. Everyone will exit via Rankin towards Lincoln Road.

Rain delay / postponement

In the event of bad weather, the decision to delay the rain of the parade will be made at 10 a.m. Parade participants and spectators can call 865-309-4742 or visit the Blount County Jaycees Facebook page for weather details regarding the possible rain delay or rain date postponement, 3 p.m. Sunday, December 5.

Empty wallet for pantry bottoms

Once again, representatives of the Jaycees and Alcoa Jayteens (Junior Jaycees) will carry leaves along the parade route to collect donations for the Empty Pantry Fund.

In the past, cloth carriers have raised well over $ 21,000 from parade spectators.

“Every penny, penny, penny and quarter and those dollars add up during the parade,” said Lon Fox, president of the Empty Pantry Fund. “This is an opportunity for everyone to have an impact on someone’s life this Christmas, because no one deserves to be hungry for Christmas.”

Recognition program

The Jaycees will reward the following categories: the most thematic, the most creative, the best vehicles (car, truck, motorcycle, four wheels, etc.), the best youth organizations, the best religious contributions and the best companies. All entries will be judged before the start of the parade. Winners will receive a certificate / invitation to an awards reception to be held at Alcoa Middle School on Monday, December 20, starting at 6 p.m. There will be food, drinks and prizes at the reception.
