Santa’s Coming to town Saturday, Dec.2 ON A FIRETRUCK.
YES, a Big Red Firetruck. Giving his reindeer the night off, Old Saint Nick is hopping on a fire engine and spreading some Holiday Magic throughout our neighborhoods.
But, there's something NEW afoot!
The Belle Meade Police are putting together a Christmas Marching Parade. The Parade will begin at 2 and will go up Belle Meade Boulevard from Percy Warner Park to the Belle Meade Country Club. AND, Santa plans to be a part of it. (see Santa's Schedule below) It will be a fun-tastic mix of music, marching band, floats, T-Rac, the GRRRRINCH, and more.
What about PARKING?
Glad you asked.
1:00 PM: Belle Meade Blvd. (BMB) will close to through traffic from Harding Place to Page Rd.
Spectators of the event will be allowed to park in the right lane of Southbound Lane of Belle Meade Blvd. The left lane shall remain clear for emergency vehicles/personnel.
2:00 PM the parade will start heading North bound on BMB.
Parade will end at triangle across from Belle Meade Country Club.
The Big Jolly Elf plans to make 4 stops to sing with his elves — who DIDN'T get the night off — AND hand out treats to the children, big and small :-) He and his firetruck will ride in the parade between Stops 2 and 3.
Got a letter for Santa? BRING IT!
It’s fast, it's easy, and, there's NO postage.
Rain or Shine, Santa is coming!

Hey Neighbors, here’s another way to SHINE hope into someone’s life. There are MANY who are without the basics, like shelter and food. We have witnessed this in our own city. If you have been looking for a worthy mission to support, please consider the Nashville Rescue Mission. I can think of no better cause.
