Christmas Parade Route Changes

This year, the huntsville christmas parade will have a slightly different route due to construction downtown.

Since there's construction on jefferson street - the floats will travel down washington street.

Waay-31s alexis scott found out what this means if you're planning to go - and for businesses in the area of the new route.

With the lane closure on jefferson street... huntsville police decided it was a safety hazard for the floats and those looking on at the parade... so they'll move the parade on down to washington street ... less than a mile away... to keep everyone safe.

Caleb hipp, salesman "we're going to come down after work and just go outside right on the sidewalk in front of the store and watch it as it comes by," caleb hipp is a salesman at lewter hardware store on washington street.

He told me he's excited for the parade this year and loves this time of year in the rocket city.

Caleb hipp, salesman "it's fun seeing all the hustle and bustle and everybody coming down to all the shops and down here and grabbing all the items they want for their loved ones," the jefferson street closure is due to construction taking up one side of the road.

Huntsville police didn't want any accidents with the floats trying to squeeze through or people standing by and getting hurt.

So they changed the route!

The christmas parade will start on clinton avenue...making it's way through the square... and eventually ending on washington street.

And after it's all said and done...hipp told me he can't wait to see the new faces afterwards.

Caleb hipp, salesman "come see us again and we'll fix you right up for all your christmas needs," lewter hardware store is closing early tuesday for the parade.
