In its 64th year, the Nashville Christmas Parade on Dec. 2 — themed “The Musical Mile!” — was a celebration of music with a record number of celebrities, marching bands, floats and large balloons filling the streets of downtown Music City with holiday festivity.

Led by Grand Marshal Mike Fisher, former captain of the Nashville Predators hockey team, the nationally syndicated parade was presented by Piedmont Natural Gas and Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge and benefited Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
