A Better Mid-South: Celebrating Whitehaven

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

Whitehaven is an extremely important part of our community and recently has seen a resurgence with the opening of the Guesthouse at Graceland.

The 450 room hotel is a $90 million investment that created more than 200 jobs.

I can't think of a better reason for the community to come together to celebrate Whitehaven and the kick off of the holiday season in Memphis.

This Saturday, the city's largest parade will be held in Whitehaven starting at 10 a.m.

The parade starts on Elvis Presley Boulevard near Southland Mall and heads north.

WMC Action News 5 is pleased to sponsor the parade again this year and will air the parade live from 10 to 11 on WMC Action News 5 and on WMCActionNews5.com

Come out, see us this Saturday in Whitehaven!

Celebrating Whitehaven and the holiday season in Memphis makes this A Better Mid-South.
