Hillsboro Christmas Parade: It was a festive scene along U.S. Highway 41 in Hillsboro on Friday, December 16, as participants in the second annual Hillsboro Homecoming Association Christmas Parade included decorated floats, ATVs, tractors, and even Santa Claus himself. The parade was hosted by the Hillsboro Homecoming Association.
The Annual Hillsboro Christmas Parade Will Be Held Again This Year
According to Jason Dendy, a member of the Hillsboro Homecoming Association, the concept of Hillsboro hosting its own Christmas parade first began to take shape a few years ago. At that time, he and his fiancée Lesley Hennessee decided to see what the community could put together to celebrate the holiday season.

Dendy referred to the group as “our own community” in his statement. We are neither Manchester nor Tullahoma nor Beechgrove. We are Hillsboro, and there is nowhere else on the planet quite like it.
Before the start of the parade at 7 o’clock in the evening, the floats, each of which needed to be hauled by a tractor, ATV, or UTV, were built in Hillsboro Park. Included among the more than 30 parade participants were Brothers Implement, Weaver Farms, Morgan House Moving, and Hillsboro Elementary School.
Coach Emily Townsend introduced the elementary school by saying, “We are the elementary school, and this is our boy’s basketball, girls’ basketball, and our cheerleaders,” right before the march got underway.
After hearing about how successful the first-ever Christmas Parade was the previous year, Townsend stated that she had the idea that it would be wonderful for Hillsboro Elementary to take part in an event that is focused on the community.
The strains of the Hawaiian Christmas standard “Mele Kalikimaka” could be heard emanating from the Weaver Farms float, which included a Hawaiian motif along with three generations of the Weaver family. This float was part of the Weaver Family Christmas Parade.
According to Jamie Weaver, this is the second year that his family has taken part in the Hillsboro Christmas Parade.

Weaver characterized the event as “simply a good neighborhood activity.” “It is a nice bargain to come, and of course, we have the Hawaiian theme with the roasting pig, and because we sell meat, it connects to selling some pork,” the host said. “We sell meat, so it ties into selling some pigs.”
According to Lesley Hennessee, the parade does not permit automobiles or trucks since Hillsboro is an agricultural village, and the organizers of the event would like to make that fact known to the attendees.

She remarked that “Hillsboro was created on an agricultural foundation and that is what we are trying to get back to.” “Hillsboro was established on an agricultural basis.” “You can get away with putting a vehicle on a trailer and pulling it behind you on a tractor… that will suffice.”
Hennessee went on to say that they simply want to “go back to our agricultural origins.”
