The city of Newbern will kick off its holiday season with its annual Christmas Parade on Thursday, Nov. 29.

The parade begins at the Church of Christ parking lot in downtown Newbern at 7 p.m. The route travels down Main Street, turns left on Washington, and ends at Newbern Elementary School.

Newbern City Recorder Jason Roberts said the Newbern Rotary Club will once again sponsor the parade. He commended members of the organization for their efforts and the success of the event each year.

"They do a fantastic job every year," said Roberts.

Those interested in entering the parade may contact Wendi Mills at the city of Newbern at 627-3125.

There is no entry fee.

Those marching in the parade are requested to line up at 6 p.m. on the corner of West Main and Newbern/RoEllen Road, where Rotarians will direct them to the appropriate location.

Following the event, hot dogs and hot chocolate will be available for those who participate in the parade at Newbern Elementary School.

In conjunction with the parade, First Baptist Church of Newbern will host its annual chili supper at the church's activities building. The dinner will take place from 5-6:30 p.m. for $5 per person. The funds will benefit the church's mission trip, scheduled for next summer.
