The 63rd Annual Nashville Christmas Parade in December 2016, which benefited Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, was awarded for best special event coverage at the 32nd Annual Midsouth Regional Emmy Awards on Jan. 20.

Parade producers John Best, Pamela Bolling, Julie Stadler and Sarah Griffith of JM Best Entertainment and Hardrive Productions said they were thrilled to receive the award for their first year producing the event.

For the past two years, this Nashville tradition has supported programs that help the patients and families at Children’s Hospital, and the national broadcast syndication has provided invaluable exposure for both the hospital and the city.

“It has been a privilege to partner with Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt for the Nashville Christmas Parade,” said Best. “This longstanding tradition has brought so much happiness to children and their families for many years, and we are honored to spread joy to even more lives by supporting Children’s Hospital.”

This year’s parade will take place on Saturday, Dec. 1. For more information, visit
