The Greenville Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with Greenville Tourism, has announced plans to host the inaugural Lighted Christmas Parade through downtown Greenville on Saturday, November 25, 2017 at 6:15 p.m.
The parade will be in conjunction with the Coming Home for Christmas celebration, which is a yearly event held the Saturday after Thanksgiving in downtown Greenville. It marks the “official” start of the holiday season and traditionally includes the annual courthouse lighting, a visit from Santa, and an opportunity to visit participating businesses on the square.
The parade will follow the showing of, A Christmas Story, on Saturday evening. The Chamber is inviting all businesses, churches, organizations, and individuals to join this fun event with a float of their own in the parade. Our parade theme is, of course, A Christmas Story!
In addition to the cast of A Christmas Story, Mr. & Mrs. Claus will make their first official appearance in Greenville during the parade.
Don’t forget to light up your float and even add some music. Come out and join us for the fun! We ask that anyone participating in the parade contact the Greenville Chamber of Commerce to fill out a participation form.
For more information about Come Home for Christmas or having a float in the parade, contact Chamber Director, Kayley Woker at 618-664-9272.
