“The parade route begins at Valley Grove Baptist Church and will head east following the southbound lanes of Chapman Highway, where it ends in the Seymour Kroger parking lot. Spectators can view the parade at any point along the south side of Chapman Highway.
This year judging will take place along the parade route instead of before the parade. The Seymour Christmas Parade is sponsored by the Seymour Volunteer Fire Department and is a not-for-profit community event. All the proceeds of the parade will benefit needy families in the Seymour area. If you have any questions, please contact SVFD at (865) 573-7475 or stop by station one.” – Seymour Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook page.
