Arlington Christmas Parade

December 16, 2023.  11am on Airline Rd

Come join us for the annual Arlington Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 16th.  It will be a "
Toy Story" themed Parade again this year, as last year's parade had to be cancelled.

This year's Grand Marshall is Ms. Ruby Hannah. Ruby Hannah was born in May 1941, and has lived in Arlington her entire life. She is a member of the Arlington Church of Christ has 2 children, 3 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. She and her husband Don Hannah (deceased) have served the Town in many ways over the years, including service on most of our town committees:  School’s PTA, Finance Committee, Beautification Committee, Parks & Recreation Committee (active with sports programs), Public Works Committee, Fire Committee, Health & Safety Committee, and The Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities (APTA) . She was instrumental in starting the Arlington in April celebration, Annual Christmas Parade, and the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, which was located in her home for many years.  Ruby’s husband Don Hannah served as an Elected Official for the Town from 1998-2002.  Ms. Hannah continues to this day to look out for the best interest of the Town she so dearly loves.
