Children marching in a Christmas parade.

For more than 75 years, the parade has signaled the start of the Christmas season in Greenville.

Each year the parade attracts thousands of visitors downtown to view the holiday floats and activities.

The 2019 parade will be from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm on Saturday, Dec. 7. The route stretches along Main Street from Augusta to North streets.

The parade will feature marching bands, elaborately decorated floats, and Santa Claus. And like always, the parade is free to attend! Prime seating will be located from the Main Street Bridge south toward Falls Park.

A parade map is now available for download.
