Sons of Confederate Veterans not allowed in Collierville Christmas Parade

COLLIERVILLE, TN (WMC) - The annual Collierville Christmas Parade was held Friday, but one group says it was blocked from taking part.

Town officials confirm they denied a parade entry from the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Collierville said the group's application didn't meet the requirement of having a holiday theme, and the town has a new rule that only the American and Tennessee flag can be flown in the parade--meaning any confederate banners would be banned.
