The most unique and unusual Christmas parade you’ll probably ever see is always the Sunday before Christmas at Boykin, South Carolina.
Our theme this year is mud, so you’ll see of a little bit of tendecy in some of the entries to have a mud display, somehow in their floats.
Parade organizer, Hank Kerfoot tells us there are tractors and horses and farm equipment, and just to be a little different this year, Kerfoot says that there’s a shotgun wedding.
There’s a local couple from here in Camden. They work at the local Piggly Wiggly together, and they’re as excited as they can be.
And, yes, there are beauty queens in the parade.
Ya know, the fat back queen, that’s one of the drag entries, and then the Collard Queen is a usual entry.
And don’t forget the sites of the historical town.
The Broom Factory’s still there, Grist Mill is there–I’m sure they’ll both be open selling grits and brooms during the parade. And you’ve got the Mill Pond Restaurant and the Company Grill…
So what is the population of Boykin? “I think it’s 6,” said Kerfoot.
The Boykin Parade begins at 2:00 p.m. this Sunday. Kerfoot adds,
The Spirit of Christmas is alive and well. If you’ve never seen it, there’s nothing like it.
