LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- The 59th Lynchburg Christmas Day parade is coming to town on December 3.

To celebrate, the theme of this year is 'rocking into the 50s'.

According to organizers, there will live bands on each of the floats.

The Grand Marshal of the parade is Tony Camm, the General Manager of the Holiday Inn Downtown, musical performer and recording artist, radio host and more.

Organizers also shared that since they are expecting a crowd of about 8 to 10,000 people, safety is a priority.

"As you know, the city is getting some much needed beautification and it would not have been safe to have the parade downtown last year or same thing this year," said Rebecca Sturm-Clasuer.

Although the parade has traditionally gone through downtown in past years, the floats will start at Lynchburg Stadium through Memorial Ave.

The parade will start at 4 p.m.
