Christmas in Cashiers

I love a parade! The annual Cashier Christmas Parade was my ‘must see’ for the crisp Saturday morning in the mountains. This was my first year to attend the parade, and I was amazed at the number of participants. The entries included everything from Fire Trucks to the Teacher of the Year. Everyone within 30 miles of Cashiers was in attendance … or in the parade. The town’s enthusiasm was contagious and Christmas was definitely in the air. I just love this town!
