ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — It’s beginning to look and feel like Christmas in the city of progress as they held their annual Christmas parade.

Over 100 local organizations came out in the holiday spirit to participate in the largest Christmas parade in southeast Alabama.
“All of our participants are heroes to us but we had Enterprise Medical Center they have been on the frontlines of this whole thing, encompass health which you mentioned before our boy scouts girl scouts of course our churches,” Grantham said.
Grantham says they left the decision in the hands of the Enterprise community on whether to plan the parade in the midst of a pandemic.
“We pulled the community and asked them would you feel comfortable coming to the Christmas parade and it was a resounding yes on please put on the Christmas parade,” She said.
Although all of the participants in the parade were fascinating, she says there was one special group who set the tone for the chilly night.
“The Enterprise Big Blue band you cannot beat the band along with the cheerleaders and the wildcat and you hear those drums playing it just gets you going,” Grantham added.
