Marching bands will thunder down Wall Street as the parade follows its traditional route, six-tenths of a mile stretching between Line Street and Maple Street.
Participants are required to submit a $20 application fee. Applications, rules and regulations are available at the Gordon County Chamber of Commerce located at 300 S. Wall St. or online at www.gordonchamber.org.
The sixth annual Fairmount City Christmas Parade will be Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and will start at Mauldin Trash and finish up at Tate Park in downtown Fairmount.
There are two categories of registration. One category is the commercial category and is for businesses wanting to be a part of the parade, and the entry fee is $25. The second category is non-commercial and is for anyone who wants to join, and the entry fee is $15.
All someone has to do to register is go to Fairmount City Hall and fill out an application, include what the theme of the float will be and pay the entry fee for the appropriate category.
