THOMASVILLE -- Santa Claus will be coming to town Monday to celebrate the kick-off of the holiday season.
Thomasville's annual Christmas Parade is slated to begin at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the intersection of Broad and Clay streets.
St. Nick will be proceeded in the parade by several local officials, including county commissioners, city council members and state leaders.
Bringing holiday tunes to parade-goers will be local bands from Thomasville City and Thomas County middle and high schools.
Cindy Quigg told the Times-Enterprise last week that more entries were expected for this year's parade than in previous years. Eighty-two entries are expected; in 2004, there were 68 participants.
The parade route travels down Broad Street to Smith Avenue, where it turns and continues to Hansell Street, near the Thomas County Health Department.
