The Enterprise Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade committee Tuesday announced the Enterprise Fire Department will be the Grand Marshal of the 2022 Enterprise Christmas Parade.
“Through the nomination process, it was evident the community wanted to show its thanks to the Enterprise Fire Department as there were multiple entries for not only the Fire Department, but also Chief Christopher Davis,” Erin Grantham, Executive Director of the Enterprise Chamber of Commerce said. “While we received other fantastic nominations for community leaders, the committee voted to recognize the efforts of the Enterprise Fire Department.”
In the early morning of Oct. 16, fire spread through several downtown buildings, including four businesses and one residence. The Enterprise Fire Department spent hours containing the fire and preventing it from damaging other buildings on Main Street. Firefighters remained on scene for several days to monitor the structures to ensure there would be no additional damage.
“Without the leadership of Chief Davis and the skill of the entire Enterprise Fire Department, the fire that affected our downtown could have been much worse,” Enterprise Mayor William E. Cooper, Sr. said. “We are very fortunate to have firefighters who are well trained and prepared for such emergencies. I am pleased that our community continues to show their appreciation for the Fire Department’s efforts and look forward to honoring them as the Grand Marshal.”
The Enterprise Christmas Parade will be Tuesday, Nov. 29 and starts at 6:30 p.m. on North Main Street at Southeast Cardiology and Grocery Outlet. The parade will travel south eight blocks to River Bank & Trust.
Applications are due by Nov. 15. For more information about the Enterprise Christmas Parade, visit the Chamber’s website at www.EnterpriseAlabama.com or contact the Enterprise Chamber office at (334) 347-0581.
