The City of Good Hope rolled out everything for the entire family ahead of the Christmas holiday today.

The events in Good Hope including an appearance from Santa Claus himself as well as:

★ The annual Christmas Parade
Christmas In The Park

With mostly sunny skies and unseasonably cold temperatures (wind chill in the upper 30’s), these outdoor festivities were invigorating and generously provided by the good folks of the City of Good Hope.

As expected, this year’s crowd along the parade route was slightly smaller than in previous years. This reduction was mirrored by the number of participants in the parade itself. Cold weather was undoubtedly a culprit in keeping some people indoors at home.

The Good Hope Raiders Marching Band was one of the highlights of the day:

We covered the parade LIVE on Cullman Today broadcasting from the middle of County Road 437 looking to the west towards Good Hope Baptist Church:

The Parade route ran from the football stadium down Good Hope School Road to the County Road 437 intersection where it turned north heading for a finish near City Hall.

Micheal Bates with Good Hope Fire & Rescue graciously joined our coverage for local knowledge and color commentary.

Christmas In The Park took place after the Parade at the Good Hope Municipal Park. Mayor Jerry Bartlett was the most prominent statesman in attendance.

Post-parade public festivities included the face, painting, hay rides, train rides, pictures with Santa. Free food is being passed out like confetti as well.
