Holly Days Parade Participant Details


Thank you!

Thank you for your online submission to the Happy Holly Days Christmas Parade!

You won't hear from us again until parade organizers contact you by email a week or so before the parade with an information packet containing all the details you will need on parade day. You can expect this information around the end of the week following Thanksgiving.

In the meantime, here are some basics:
  • Parade day is 11 a.m. the second Saturday of December - rain or shine.
  • Line-up time that morning begins at 9 a.m., and everyone must be in place by 10:45 a.m.
  • Line-up locations vary, depending on your entry, so refer to your parade info packet when you receive it.
  • The parade will step onto Main Street at 10:50 a.m. and pause at Holly Springs Road to allow all units to close the gaps. The parade will resume from Holly Springs Road at 11 a.m.
  • Doing this staged start - believe it or not - shaves 30 minutes off the parade time!
  • All entries are urged to think "parade" and decorate themselves and their entries in a festive manner!
Look for our Holly Days parade information to arrive by email the week after Thanksgiving. And, Happy Holly Days!
