News Community Sylva Christmas parade straight out of a storybook

Sylva kicked off the holiday season last Saturday with the annual Christmas Parade.

This year’s theme was “A Storybook Christmas,” and floats were judged by a three-member panel which included Jackson County Arts Council President Sylvia Smythe and a representative each from Western Carolina University and Southwestern Community College.

Coming in third place was St. David's Episcopal Church, followed by Liberty Baptist in second place and Skyland Care Center took the cake with a first place ribbon.

Leading the parade were grand marshals, R.O. and Willetta Vance, the longest serving Main Street merchants and owners of Vance Hardware.
