One of the things I love about Christmas parades is the community spirit. People come together to create, organize and present a memorable experience. The atmosphere is festive. People are kind and willing to lend a helping hand. Complete strangers greet you with a smile. This is what you experience at a small town event like the Spring Hill, Tennessee 12th Annual Christmas Parade.
It was dull, cloudy and cool, but that did not keep people from coming out and lining both sides of Main Street in anticipation of the parade. To add to the small town feel, a local church had its doors opened along the parade route to accommodate patrons with the use of its property. Free popcorn and hot chocolate was being served on the church grounds. The community fellowship is always great to see. Everyone appeared to be having a great time. The pictures tell the best story. I hope you enjoy the photos.
There were a lot of great floats in this parade. While night time parades can be challenging to shoot, they are great for Christmas lights and pyrotechnics. Kudos to Kiwanis of Spring Hill and Thompson’s Station for putting on a great event. This was my first Spring Hill parade. I hope to shoot this parade again.
