The lights of Christmas shine like stars during the Holly Jolly Electric Christmas Parade, which takes place the 2nd Saturday in December in beautifully decorated Downtown Paris Tennessee. Holiday music fills the air as the community's high school band marches past. Thousands of lights twinkle as floats roll by. Then the big man himself, along with Rudolf and a few favorite elves create an exciting grand finale. The parade kicks off at 5 pm immediately following the Downtown Christmas Festival.
