Parked cars lined the side of Southall Road a mile before it intersected with Hillsboro Road Saturday afternoon, as families trekked toward tiny Leiper’s Fork’s downtown.

An officer with the Williamson County Sheriff said every year the parade attracts between 8,000 and 10,000 attendees, and Saturday was no exception.

A few flakes of snow drifted down from the sky before the parade began around 2:15 p.m. “We’re not on standard time, we’re on Leiper’s Fork time,” joked announcer Mike “Goose” Davis.

Known as the ‘almost famous’ Leiper’s Fork Christmas Parade, the event has become a tradition in Williamson County, with visitors coming from all over Tennessee to watch.
