Applications are now available online for the Murfreesboro Christmas Parade which will be held Sunday, December 12. This year the event will be co-hosted by WGNS Radio along with the City of Murfreesboro.

“We are excited to partner with WGNS this year to bring the sights and sounds of Christmas to our community,” said Rachel Singer, assistant director of Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation. “The theme this year is ‘The Spirit of Christmas’, and we look forward to seeing how the different groups interpret the theme.”

The parade route begins at the Middle Tennessee State University campus on East Main Street and ends at the historic square.
