The City of Manchester presented the Old Time Christmas Parade on Friday night (Nov. 30, 2012). The event was sponsored by the city’s Tourism and Community Development Commission, City of Manchester, Al White Motors and Central Funeral Home. The parade had near 80 entries with many floats and automobiles, the high school band and more. Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus wrapped up the parade on the city float. Many people along the route said it was the best Manchester Christmas parade yet and seem to put everyone in the holiday spirit.
The Coffee Co. Sheriff’s Dept. won 1st place in the float contest. 2nd place was the Manchester Rec Center Teen Council and the Manchester City float came in and 3rd place.

A crowd of 5,000 people enjoyed the annual event
