Yahooters ready for area parades

The usual Christmas scene of red and green will be filled with hot pink feather boas and dancing and singing women as The Yahooters get set to roll down downtown Montgomery.   

The group of women, ranging in age from 28-62 from Montgomery, Opelika and Auburn, will delight the parade crowd with their newest version of the Brian Setzer Orchestra's  swing tune, Jingle Bells. Complete with falling snow, this year's routine is set to be the best.

After winning first place at last year's Montgomery Christmas parade, the ladies have stepped things up... by adding more decorations and a few surprises along the way. Last year the group also won first place in the Opelika Christmas parade.

The Yahooters started out as a group of women getting together once a month for friendship and fellowship but has since turned in to a local phenomenon with women as far away as Nashville wanting to start their own Yahooter chapter. The ladies are currently working on their own cookbook filled with humorous stories and pictures.

Since their formation, The Yahooters have performed on area tv shows, performed for Alabama Governor Bob Riley's Inauguration parade (who gave them two thumbs up!), been the subject of articles in regional newspapers, performed at regional civic events, and served as key note speakers at area forums.

And while they are all about fun, The Yahooters also raise money for breast cancer research. It's a cause they took up after one of their members was diagnosed with the disease.

This year The Yahooters will perform in three area parades, The Opelika Christmas parade, December 3rd, The Auburn Christmas parade, December 4th, and the Montgomery Christmas parade, December 5th.
