Break out the pinstripe suits, poodle skirts, go-go boots and tie-dye because the 2023 Dixie National Parade will be ‘Trailing through the Decades” on Saturday, Feb 11 at 10:30am. This is a family favorite, where an array of cars, tractors, marching groups, floats, mounted horses and wagons go parading through the streets of Downtown Jackson! Spectators can enjoy the view from President, High and West Streets.
