City of Lawrenceburg Creates Wonderful Christmas Celebration

The City of Lawrenceburg put on an absolutely wonderful Christmas celebration spanning from last night into today.  Last night, Mayor Goodlett, County Clerk Jason Denny, and City Attorney Robert Myles conducted the annual remembrance ceremony at the senior center, calling the names of all those that passed away this year.  Everyone then walked to the Lawrenceburg Green with a lit candle as a vigil before singing Christmas carols and the official lighting of the green.

Then this morning, the “Christmas Classics” parade was a great twist to an old tradition.  Ed McKee, official voice of the Anderson County High School Bearcats, started the celebration on Main Street asking both children and adults what they wanted for Christmas.  Then, as the parade approached, both Ed and Robert Myles announced all the various floats and winners of the competitions.  And, we had some fabulous floats this year with YKK going all out and making a full Whoville featuring the Grinch.  The Anderson County Fire Department cadets also were really creative this year making a Peanuts fire house.  The Anderson County Marching Band was also present putting on a great performance.

Overall, the crowds attending absolutely enjoyed the celebrations this year.  We thank City Clerk Robbie Hume, the city, and county governments for putting together such a wonderful show.  Be sure to watch the video above showing clips of last night’s and today’s celebrations and check out our Flickr page for 72 photos of the parade that are free to download and print.
