First photos from Thursday’s Cartersville Exchange Club Christmas Parade  courtesy of CPD: The Exchange Club has been organizing the Christmas Parade for the last 29 years. The parade once again was led by members of The Exchange Club called the “Bucket Brigade.” Club members ask spectators to donate a $1 or whatever change they have to contribute to the funds raised for the local children charities.

Updates from Thursday’s Cartersville Exchange Club Christmas Parade:

  • more than 95 entries.
  • more than $2,400 raised through Bucket Brigade.
  • Total money raised from registration fees, sponsorship and Bucket Brigade will be calculated and sent out in the next few days.

As always, the Exchange Club is extremely appreciative of everyone who participates or comes out to watch the parade. We know it was a record number of parade watchers this year.
