Thomas (T.) Larry Smith has been chosen Grand Marshal for the 2019 Headland Christmas Parade. This year’s parade theme is “Bicentennial: 200 Years in the making” and is set for Thursday, Dec. 5 at 6:30pm.
The Grand Marshal will lead the parade through the downtown area followed by bands, floats, queens, dignitaries, horses, CornDodgers Farm's candy cannon and Santa Claus. The parade will follow our Annual Tree Lighting and Kindergarten Sing. Children can visit with Santa on the front porch of the library immediately following the parade.
T. Larry has been in love with history his entire life and his roots run deep in Henry County. Appointed by the Henry County Commission in 2000 as the Official Historian of Henry County, Alabama, we felt it was only appropriate to have him honored has our parade marshal for the Bicentennial Christmas Parade. Mr. Smith has a passion for recording Henry County’s history and now he will become of it.
The parade line-up will be at Douglas Park starting at 5:30pm. The parade route begins at Douglas Park on East Church Street, continues to and around the town square, then south on Main Street to King, Cleveland and Whitten streets, and ends on Mitchell Street at the school parking lot.
