Florala will have its annual Christmas celebrations this afternoon and tonight.

Christmas music will begin outdoors in the downtown area at 3 p.m. with DJ Dave Palmer.

At 4:30 p.m., the Rev. Bundy will read the Christmas message, and the parade rolls at 5 p.m.


There are some special surprises after the parade, including carol singing, and an appearance by Santa and the elves, who are rumored to be delivering treats in the area of the city’s huge new outdoor tree.

There also will be a live band for street dancing.

The official opening of the new children’s park is also planned. Festivities conclude at 8 p.m. with a full fireworks show donated by Buddy’s Fireworks.
