The Mooresville Annual Christmas parade has been an annual tradition since 1944. However today this tradition is being threatened. Not because there is a desire to end the parade but because the daily life of Mooresville's citizens has evolved. Fewer people live and work in the town of Mooresville and as a result have to commute longer distances to work making it less feasible to leave work or take time off. This results in fewer families attending the parade and fewer lasting memories.

If the parade was moved to the first Saturday before thanksgiving, it would be easier to maintain this life work balance.The Tuesday date is a tradition because most people native to Mooresville remember when almost every business in Mooresville was closed and this day made the most sense.Bosses and business owners understood this, buttoday this is no longer the case.

By moving this parade from it's traditional Tuesday time to the previous Saturday we can once again allow families in Mooresville to enjoy this event and build lasting memories together.
