2018 Theme: Christmas Memories: To coincide with the Alabama 200, Limestone County 200, City of Athens 200, the Mooresville 200 and to continue the theme of Trustmark’s Athens Christmas Parade theme of “Bicentennial” – this year’s theme of the Athens North Pole Stroll will look back at Christmas Memories. Hopefully, the many cherished memories of Christmas of days-gone-by of the decorators of this year’s event in a variety of decorations – photos, stories, hand-crafted items, and whatever the imagination brings to life will adorn the trees that will fill Big Spring Memorial Park in Athens.
The location, Big Spring Memorial Park, is the perfect backdrop for this annual festival that was awarded the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Things To Do In December 2018 accolades. The pond has roots in the City of Athens’ history as well as the settlement of North Alabama itself – making a perfect place to mark “Christmas Memories” and the 2018 Bicentennial Christmas passing.
