Purcellville Parade Round II
The weather was frightful last weekend, so the Purcellville Christmas Parade will happen this Saturday. The parade starts at noon with floats and participants from local organizations, clubs, teams, and businesses and of course Jolly Old Saint Nick himself. Santa will also be riding along with the Purcellville Fire Department on Friday and Saturday nights through the streets of Purcellville. Wonder if that mean old Grinch will be tailing Santa’s firetruck again this year?
