Cocke Co. Partnership Looking For Help From Downtown Businesses
The Cocke County Partnership is asking businesses in downtown Newport to get into the Christmas spirit by extending their hours on Friday December 2nd. That is the date for the Newport Christmas Parade, which will be a nighttime parade this year. The partnership is asking downtown businesses to stay open until the parade starts at 6:30 and should be downtown by 6:45. Numerous vendors will be set up along the parade route downtown and there will be lots of activities at the Cocke County Courthouse. Of course, Santa Claus will be there as well. The Partnership asks that if you have a downtown business and will be staying open for the parade, to let them know that you will be open and what kind of giveaways or sales you will be having so they can help spread the word. You can contact the Cocke County Partnership at 623-7201.
