Town of Unicoi gathers for annual Christmas parade celebration

UNICOI, TN (WJHL) – Dozens hit the streets of Downtown Unicoi Saturday for their annual Christmas Parade.

This tradition starts at the Unicoi Funeral Home and ends right next to the Unicoi Elementary School.

Dozens of local businesses and vendors passed out candy to kids along the route including the Unicoi County Sheriff’s Office, Mickey and Minnie Mouse and even Santa himself.

A local mom we spoke with was thrilled to see her son in the parade for the first time.

“It was amazing, it was so nice to see all the different people come out for it too. This is our first one and my son is in ROTC so we were even more excited he got to participate in it too,” Jenea Whittington said.

Whittington said she is looking forward to watching her son in the parade for the next four years.
