GOOD HOPE – The City of Good Hope held its sixth annual Christmas Parade and Christmas in the Park celebration on Saturday, with the parade starting at Good Hope High School and proceeding to the park by city hall. Local bands, including Hanceville High and Good Hope High, marched, along with Boy Scouts, horse riders, local church groups and others. Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry served as grand marshal.

After the parade, approximately 400 participants and parade-goers alike converged on the park for free train rides, hot food and refreshments, inflatables and pictures with Santa.

Good Hope Mayor Jerry Bartlett remarked that the turnout was up this year, noting the weather this year was much better than in years past.
