UNION — The postponement of Union’s annual Christmas parade allowed for pleasant weather and a large turnout.


Union County Chamber of Commerce Director Torance Inman said the chamber was pleased with Sunday’s parade, and the huge turnout was a pleasant surprise.


The parade was originally scheduled for Dec. 8, but it was postponed one week due to rain.


“I’m glad we did,” Inman said about the postponement. “The weather was so bad last week, and on Sunday, the weather was absolutely beautiful. It was seasonally cool. It was a great day for a parade.”


Parade marshalls were Wade’s Employment, Union County Arts Council, and Chamber Volunteer of the Year Roger Bailey. The fourth marshall, Haemonetics, was unable to attend. Each float in the parade was judged, and winners were Boy Scout Troop 42 (first place), Miss Elaine’s Dance (second place), and Miracle League of Union County (third place).


Inman said the chamber was greatly pleased with all parade participants, and he mentioned he was thankful for Southside Fire Department, which handled the pre-parade lineup.
