Start Off The Christmas Season With The Christmas Parade In Fredericksburg!
There’s no better way to kick off the Christmas season than with a good old-fashioned parade. If you live in or around Fredericksburg, you’ve probably been waiting for one of the area’s most anticipated holiday traditions – and the wait is almost over! Saturday, December 7, marks the event you look forward to every year: the annual Fredericksburg Christmas Parade. Don’t miss it – mark your calendar now and get ready to welcome the most festive season of the year to beautiful downtown Fredericksburg!
The Fredericksburg Christmas Parade has graced the streets of this history-rich town since 1985 and continues to draw crowds of spectators to get their first dose of Christmas cheer.
Of course, no holiday parade would be complete without bright lights, marching bands, intricately decorated floats, and the guest of honor, Santa in his sleigh. The theme for this year’s parade is “A Futuristic Christmas,” so spectators can expect to see floats and participants stretching the bounds of creativity.
Kicking off at 5:30 p.m., the parade proceeds along Caroline and Princess Anne Streets in lovely Downtown Fredericksburg. Stake out your viewing spot on the sidewalks along either side of the parade route (note that the sidewalk in front of the courthouse is closed). Bring lawn chairs and blankets for your viewing comfort.
