The Starkville Main Street Association has announced Starkville’s annual Christmas Parade presented by Reed’s will be held on Monday, Nov. 27, at 6 p.m. on Main Street.
Being honored as this year’s Grand Marshal is the City of Starkville’s Vice Mayor Roy A. Perkins.
A proud native of Starkville with numerous accolades and honors throughout his tenure, Vice Mayor Perkins was first elected to represent Ward 6 in 1993 and surpassed 30 years of service and leadership for the city this summer. He has served as Vice Mayor for four consecutive terms.
