LAUREL, Miss. (WDAM) - On Friday, the Sertoma Club of Laurel is hosting its 39th annual Christmas parade.

This year, however, the parade will be taking an alternative route.

The parade lineup will be the same as years past on Mason Street from West Sixth Street down to McDonald’s at Leontyne Price Blvd.

The parade will progress east on Mason Street to South Magnolia Street. The parade will then turn left onto Sawmill Rd. and proceed east onto Fifth Street down in front of First Baptist church.

This year, the route will continue on 5th Street and turn left onto Carroll Gartin Boulevard. Finally, the route will turn right onto Sawmill Road back to the mall.

According to a member of the Sertoma Club, the route changes were due to street construction. The parade will not be going up Leontyne Price Boulevard this year.
