Dickens of a Christmas Parade has more entries than in years past

Posted: Updated:
There will be 118 entries in Friday's Dickens of a Christmas Parade in downtown Roanoke.  We learned from Downtown Roanoke Inc. that this is the highest number of entries in the last 4 or 5 years.

HopeTree Family Services created a 611 replica after studying the train at The Virginia Museum of Transportation.  The replica will eventually be kept at the museum.

Western Virginia Water Authority has participated for the last four years and created a giant Polar Express train for the kids to enjoy.

WSLS 10 is proud to be a sponsor of the festivities and looks forward to joining all of the other entries when the event starts at 6:30pm.
