The Manchester Christmas Parade was held on Saturday in front of thousands in attendance. Floats were judged on originality, effort, and theme as it pertained to the theme of the parade, “Christmas at the Movies.” Floats were placed into one of two categories depending on the length of the entry. Regular floats were entries 20 feet or shorter in length. Large floats were entries over 20 feet in length.
First place in the regular category was the Coffee County Circuit Clerk’s office. Second place was the Coffee County High School Cheerleader float, and third place went to Grace Baptist Church. In the Large float category, Huff and Puff Truck won first place, followed by Canvas Community Church and Gregory’s Beechgrove Country Store.
