The annual New Year’s Day Parade will be held between 11:00am and 1:00pm mainly along Broadway Blvd. The route has been rerouted from last year’s normal route as Mrs. Arlington and the Main Street Ladies Club has protested the route claiming damages to flower beds. The city disputes this claim as said flower beds were completely covered in snow and ice last year; no flowers were damaged. The initial hearing of The Main Street Ladies Club v The City will be heard later this year in February. To avoid further conflict the parade route has been diverted away from the Main Street residential area and will now travel down Sixth Street. Mr. Langston and the Sixth Street Singers Club fully supports this change and will join the march with traditional barbershop music once the parade reaches Sixth Street. Secure your spots early, sidewalks fill up quickly!
