Blountville Christmas Parade set for Saturday

BLOUNTVILLE — The Blountville Christmas Parade, organized each year by the Blountville Ruritan Club, is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Originally scheduled for last week, the event — which draws a variety of floats, bands and other assorted entries from the community — was postponed due to inclement weather.

The only requirement for entry is to have some sort of Christmas theme displayed or included in each entry’s design.

Those interested in entering the parade are asked to arrive at the corner of State Route 126 and Oak Street by 1 p.m. Saturday.

Also on the holiday roster in Historic Blountville on Saturday are public tours of the Old Deery Inn.

The tours will be available, for a donation, between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., said Sullivan County’s Director of Archives and Tourism Shelia Steele Hunt.

“The inn is decorated in wonderful period holiday splendor,” Hunt said. “The parade is always a big draw and is a longtime Christmas tradition for the community. We invite everyone to come out and enjoy some Christmas spirit in a good old-fashioned way in Historic Blountville.”
