PRATTVILLE, Ala. (WSFA) - The City of Prattville officially kicks off the Christmas season Thursday.

The city of Prattville held its official tree lighting ceremony Thursday. The 30-foot Christmas tree sits in the center of downtown, which is also the backdrop for Prattville’s Christmas Parade Friday.

Participants in the parade will decorate with the idea of what Christmas means to them: a special Christmas memory, a favorite Christmas carol, or even a favorite Christmas toy. The parade starts at 7 p.m.

This year’s parade grand marshal is Andrea Armstrong, a native of Prattville who has traveled the world to become a world champion in women’s weightlifting! She was the focus of a WSFA 12 News County Road 12 segment in November.
