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.
Spencer said “a toy drive for the Racing Angels of America” will also be held Saturday in Haralson in conjunction with the holiday festivities.
Headquartered in Mobile, Ala., Racing Angels is a non-profit organization that has as its main objective gathering toys and funds for terminally ill and disabled children along the Gulf Coast.
