Homewood, Alabama – The City of Homewood and The Homewood Chamber of Commerce present the 2020 Lighting of the Star and Crusin’ Christmas Parade on Sunday, December 6th.
The festivities will kick off at 5:30 PM as newly-elected Mayor Patrick McClusky will light the star over 18th Street. The Lighting of the Star will be held virtually at 5:30 PM on Facebook Live only; no members of the public will be able to attend this portion of the event in-person.
The Crusin’ Christmas Parade will begin at 6:30 PM and will be a drive- through parade in which the parade entries remain stationary while the observers will drive through, allowing for spaces between parade entries and no public contact. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, pedestrian traffic along the parade route will not be allowed, and there will be no thrown candy or handed out materials. Attendees are asked not to arrive prior to 6:20PM as well as to remain in their vehicles at all times and to drive 10 mph or less while viewing the parade. Streets will be shut down at 5:00 pm to allow floats to assemble– however parking lots and exits from the SOHO parking deck will remain open.
