ROANOKE CO. (WSLS 10) – Business leaders are discussing creating Roanoke County's first Christmas parade this year.

Roanoke City, Salem and Vinton all have annual holiday parades and celebrations.  Now small business owners want to plan the same.

Members of the Brambleton Area Business Association are working to organize the parade along Brambleton Avenue this December.

President Michael Shelton says they decided on December 10th as the date of the event, but it's still early in the planning process.

Jill Loope with Roanoke County says official plans through VDOT and the county have not yet been finalized.
