The Whitehaven Christmas Parade kicked off the holiday season on the heels of tree lighting ceremonies all over town last night.
Some say the high turnout Saturday could be a prelude to a community turnaround.
The sound of drums, horns, and cheers drew five thousand revelers to the Whitehaven Christmas Parade from all over Memphis.
"The biggest turnout ever. What a great sun shiny day," said Whitehaven Christmas Parade Organizer Hazel Moore. Watch video of the parade here.
