The colorful river parade begins at 5:30 PM, Saturday, December 14 at Forsythe Park and will make its way to the Downtown RiverMarket. The stars of television?s Duck Dynasty will serve as Grand Marshals aboard a vessel sponsored by Universal Music Group Nashville. They will address the crowd from their boat at the RiverMarket, the premium viewing area for all the sights and sounds of the flotilla and the big Laser Light Show that follows.
