Sylvester welcomes Saint Nick with a parade

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of folks got into the holiday spirit with The Downtown Sylvester Christmas Parade Thursday night.

"Just bringing back to where we all came from, what it's about, bringing everyone together.  Just the unity of a community. And I think in our day in time we need that," said Jana Dyke, Sylvester Main Street Director.  

Stores downtown will be offering specials all night and plan to stay open late, providing holiday shopping opportunities. They had live entertainment by the courthouse square and bounce houses for the kids.

And for the first year there will be vendors on Kelly Street so folks have even more opportunities to get their Christmas shopping done while enjoying the festivities.
