Tow Truck Covered in Christmas Lights

Are you gearing up for Cartersville's annual holiday procession, sponsored by the Exchange Club and set for Thursday, Dec. 6, at 6 p.m.? Share your photos and videos!

Cartersville Patch caught up with a local business preparing for the annual Cartersville Christmas parade and it was a sight that stopped onlookers in their tracks, some of whom whipped out their camera phones.

We spotted the flatbead covered in Christmas lights on Highway 41 and caught up with driver Anthony Johnson of ABC America Towing and Recovery at Walmart.

"We're just getting ready for the parade," he said, adding that ABC America is firming up plans for its float. In the meantime, you may see Johnson's truck around town in full glow.

The Cartersville-Bartow County Exchange Club parade, the proceeds of which benefit local children's charities, is set for 6 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 6.

New to the offering year is the Jingle Jog, a 1.4-mile foot race to benefit Advocates for Bartow's Children and help get the crowd ready for the main event.
