By Staff Brunswick Beacon

The annual Shallotte Christmas parade will kick off at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 6, on Main Street.

This year, more than 100 units have signed on to march through town, passing out candy to onlookers and spreading Christmas cheer.

The roads will be closed at 8:30 a.m. for the safety of all parade participants, town officials said.

In addition to the usual procession, volunteers from Brunswick Family Assistance will be pushing shopping carts the length of the parade route collecting nonperishable foods for the food pantry.

BFA officials say donations are much-needed this time of year.

The parade lineup is as follows:

Shallotte Chief of Police Rodney Gause

Brunswick County Sheriff John Ingram
