Haralson will be kicking off the celebration of Christmas on Saturday with its annual parade and Christmas-tree lighting.
The parade will start at 6 p.m., according to organizer Eric Spencer.
Participants will gather at Haralson Head Start and process through the southeast Coweta hamlet.
The tree-lighting ceremony “will follow the parade” on the green at the Head Start building, which is the town’s historic school, according to Spencer.
