SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - It is no longer the Holiday Caravan Parade, but a new parade is taking shape for Spencer and Salisbury.
According to The Salisbury Post, following a Thursday meeting at J.C. Price High School, a group of residents has decided to form a nonprofit and continue the parade.
The group will register for nonprofit status as the 'Tis the Season Spectacular' with the State of North Carolina.
The Post reported that attendees at the meeting included Mayor Al Heggins of Salisbury, Mayor Jim Gobbel of Spencer, former Holiday Caravan Board Member Tammy Pinkston and Scott and Kathy Adams.
Participating in the incorporation of the nonprofit are Tammy Pinkston, Rusty Miller, Alvena Heggins, A.J. Alexander, Scott Adams, Kathy Adams, George W. Benson, Donna Odrosky, Susan Thomas and P.J. Ricks.
Pinkston provided an overview of what the logistics and expectations would be for a community group seeking to develop and promote its own holiday parade. She further offered to serve as a guide for new community members seeking to keep the holiday parade going, according to The Post.
The meeting was facilitated by local attorney Rocky Cabagnot and former Holiday Caravan board president Tammy Pinkston.
