White Bluff area Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will be honored as grand marshals for Saturday’s Electric Christmas Parade. The theme for this year’s parade is “An All American Christmas” and Mayor Linda Hayes says she can’t think of anything much more American than scouts. The celebration begins with a pancake breakfast with Santa at the White Bluff Community Center 7-10 am. Admission is $5, which includes all-you-can-eat pancakes, pictures with Santa, a coloring contest and Santa’s Store, where children can buy inexpensive gifts. Donations of new toys and non-perishable foods to assist area families in need will be accepted at the community center. The parade begins at 4:30 from William James Middle School and makes a loop through downtown on Highway 70, turns north on Highway 47 and then back to downtown on Old Charlotte Road to return to Highway 70 and end back at the school. Korean War veteran Joe England was originally scheduled to be grand marshal but health issues have forced him to withdraw, so parade organizers have chosen to honor local scouts. Following the parade there will be free hot chocolate and cookies at the community center with performances by the William James Middle School choir and the VIBE Dance Company.
