Application for the 2017 Starkville Christmas Parade

The 2017 Starkville Christmas Parade theme is ‘A Caroling Christmas’ and the event will be held Monday, November 27 at 6 p.m. This year’s theme is in honor and memory of the late John Robert Arnold, a longtime Starkville resident and Christmas parade participant. Most notably, Arnold routinely drove a flatbed truck with Christmas carolers and sang through amplified speakers each year. Mr. Arnold was active in the leadership of many community organizations including the Chamber of Commerce, Boy Scouts, the MSU Development Foundation, Rotary Club, and United Way. Serving as this year’s Grand Marshal will be Mr. Arnold’s beloved wife, Mary Ann.
