CANTON — Gas up the cars and trucks, get out all the Pisgah flags and make sure the horn is working properly.

The Town of Canton announced Monday afternoon it is making preparations for the "Parade of Champions," celebrating the Pisgah varsity girls and boys basketball teams winning the KSA Holiday Classic championships in Orlando.

The teams will depart Orlando Tuesday morning and officials expect the team bus to arrive in Haywood County between 7 and 8 p.m. on New Year's Eve.

The Pisgah team bus will be escorted once it ramps off I-40 at Exit 37 (East Canton). The "Parade of Champions" will proceed along the Old Asheville Highway route, through downtown Canton, turning at Bethel Christian Academy and making its way to Pisgah High School.
