    • by Gina Gott

      I go to this parade every year . It is one of my favorite parts of Christmas . There is not another parade like this anywhere in the world . The best reason for going to the annual , Boykin Christmas Parade , is to see what Santa Clause will decide to arrive in. He has been known to come in on an air plane , a horse , or sometimes riding a tractor.

      It goes without saying that this parade is unique . I wouldn’t want it any other way . Boykin is a very small southern town of about 200 people . Yes I said 200 .

      The parade runs through the center of this charming place . Local vendor’s sale the best homemade bbq and sweets .

      You can step back in time and visit the local saw mill and and the two local restaurants on the main street . You can also see brooms being made by hand , and shop at the local gift shop for all kinds of goodies .

      Everyone dresses up , even the dogs , for this remarkable parade . I always bring my chihuahua . You will see alot of labs and just about any other dog you can think of . It is all part of the adventure .

      It is not very organized , but that is part of the fun . Sometimes there are 10 minute delays in between floats , and anyone can start walking down the street and join in the parade . You will get ...

      • a clapping of hands and waves from the people on the side line . In most parades getting candy thrown at you is normal .

        Well in Boykin , don’t be surprised to get a roll of toilet paper tossed at you from a float . This parade is anything but normal , and that is why it is loved by me and many others . Don’t be surprised at who is in the parade either . You will see the fatback queen , a man dressed up in a hilarious dress .

        Possibly the button man , a guy who drives a car completely covered in buttons . The alligator man has even put in an appearance or two . Young or old , this parade is sure to surprise and

        delight you . I look forward to it all year long .

        Most people arrive a few hours early to get a good parking space and browse the street vendors . There are even people that bring campers and spend the night . The parade is usually held on the second sunday in December at 2:30 . Even if it starts to drizzle , the parade will march on .

        Once you visit this parade , you will be marking it on your calendar every year . Make sure and bring your family , friends , and especially your dog with you . You will be in the Christmas spirit when you leave and have many cherished memories to take home with you . A country christmas is something that you will never forget .
