Aiken and Augusta parades come marching in Sunday

Nothing like a parade can help boost that holiday feeling and Sunday floats will take over streets in Augusta, Aiken and North Augusta.

The 24th annual Augusta Jaycees Christmas Parade starts at 5:45 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of 13th and Broad streets. The two-hour parade features at least 30 floats, high school marching bands, a camel, horses, Miss Georgia and Santa Claus.

"Christmas - A Child's Wonderland" is the theme for this year's Aiken Jaycees Christmas parade that begins at 3 p.m. today at the intersection of Union Street and Park Avenue. The route goes east to Laurens Street and north on Barnwell Avenue.

The Aiken parade features more than 100 entries, fire trucks, Santa Claus and the grand marshal, said Aiken Department of Public Safety Chief Carrol Busbee.

The parade in North Augusta begins at 2 p.m. at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Martintown Road. From there floats and entries will travel south on Georgia Avenue and turn right on Buena Vista Avenue and right again on West Avenue. The parade is sponsored by the North Augusta Lion's Club.
