Christmas Extravaganza Lights Parade Rules/Registration

Please keep in mind that this is the first time we’ve arranged a Christmas Light Parade and it’s entirely a volunteer effort.  While we will do our best, we are bound to make a few mistakes and hope to learn from them so we can have even better parades in future. Please be kind and patient with all involved so this can become a wonderful new Screven County tradition.
