December 4 is the Mix 96.9 Von Braun Center Huntsville Christmas Parade, which means music, floats, fun, Santa, and road closures in the downtown area.
If you’re heading to downtown, be prepared for traffic issues starting mid-afternoon near Lot K, around the intersection of Clinton Ave. and Woodson Street, and in the area of Holmes Ave. and Woodson Street.
Huntsville Police will close roads near the beginning of the parade starting at 5:00 p.m. and the parade will start at 6:00 p.m.
Anyone driving in the parade area is asked to use extreme caution because of the amount of traffic, both vehicle and pedestrian.
Don’t let a parade turn into a tragedy.
