No Holiday Starlight Parade this year! – Chattanooga, TN

by Jeff

For the first time in at least 20 years, there will be a silent night instead of a Holiday Starlight Parade in downtown Chattanooga this year.

A series of miscues and lack of funding led organizers to cancel the traditional parade along Market Street as well as the Appalachian Christmas, a bluegrass music event held at Miller Plaza.

Carla Pritchard, president of Chattanooga Presents she said the Grand Illumination, which lights up the downtown skyline, still will go on.

“It’s just a funding issue,” she said, “The money’s not there.”
