Pickens Christmas parade grand marshals announced


PICKENS — The Greater Pickens Chamber of Commerce will present the annual Pickens Christmas parade this Friday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. in downtown Pickens.

This year’s theme is “A Dickens Christmas.”

For those who cannot attend in person, the parade will be livestreamed on the city of Pickens’ Facebook page.

The chamber has announced that there will be two grand marshals for this year’s parade.

The first is Mable Owens Clarke who was recently awarded the Order of the Palmetto for her diligent work over the past two decades to save historic Soapstone Baptist Church.

The second grand marshal is the Pickens High School girls’ golf team, which won the Class 4A state championship this year.
