A kickoff to the holiday season is coming through Russellville this weekend.

Two parades are set to take place in the community Saturday — the Russellville Lions Club's parade in the morning and a lighted tractor parade that evening.

This year's Lions Club Christmas parade in Russellville will start at 10 a.m., with participants lining up at 9 a.m. at Russellville High School. The parade theme is "A Year to Remember."

The Lions Club hopes the community will come out and celebrate the holidays, asking that everyone adhere to social distancing and, if they choose, wear a face mask to keep everyone safe.

Though Community Point Bank will not offer treats this year due to the coronavirus, Santa Claus will hand out bags of candy at the end of the route once the parade concludes.

The lighted tractor parade will take place at 6 p.m. Lineup begins at 5 p.m. at the high school.

This will be the third year for the lighted tractor parade. The Russellville Agri Leaders strongly advise social distancing between family groups and ask that no candy be thrown.

Though nothing is happening before or after the evening parade this year, organizers will give out awards for best of show, best use of lights and best farm equipment. To be a part of the contest, enter at the high school during lineup.
