The East Ridge Christmas Parade will be this Saturday, Nov. 23.
The parade, the first municipal holiday parade of the season, will begin at 6:30 p.m. The route will be as it has in years’ past, along Ringgold Road from Germantown Road to Tombras Avenue.
City officials said that in preparation of the event, Ringgold Road will close at 6 p.m. between South Seminole and Moore Road. In addition, only one northbound lane will be open on Germantown Road due to the participants in the parade lining up along the thoroughfare. Participants’ lineup will begin at 4 p.m.
If cancelled due to extreme weather/storms, the makeup day will be the following day, Sunday, November 24 at 3:00 p.m., with Germantown Road and Ringgold Road shutting down to traffic beginning at 2:00 p.m. for Germantown Road and 3:00 p.m. for Ringgold Road. The parade route and road closures are the same as the normal parade route and areas.
Please obey all traffic rules and officials in this area. East Ridge Police will be at each intersection to direct traffic on the north-bound lane of Germantown Road and will also monitor the parade route via motorcycle units. Thank you for your cooperation!
