Lee Ann and Bart Walker to Serve as Murfreesboro Christmas Parade Grand Marshalls

Christmas Parade 2022

After years of serving as parade coordinators, Lee Ann and Bart Walker will serve as Grand Marshalls of the 2022 Murfreesboro Christmas Parade. With the theme “Christmas Through the Years,” the parade starts from Main Street at Middle Tennessee State University on Sunday, Dec. 12, starting at 2 p.m. and ends at the Rutherford County Courthouse on the historic square.

After moving to Murfreesboro and purchasing WGNS News Radio with Bart in the fall of 1984, Lee Ann took over the coordination of the parade from the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce. Her vast experience coordinating large event, such as the Tennessee Craft Fair in Nashville, helped her to involve many local organizations to grow the parade over the past 35-plus years.
