The parade will travel down Main Street, and will conclude with a guest appearance from Santa.
Seating is not provided. You’re encouraged to bring your own.
The Parade Marshal is Mayor Leonardo Williams.
Important Update: Due to issues with supply, Durham Parks and Recreation will not be providing floats for this year’s holiday parade. We encourage participants to show their creativity by decorating and sitting in truck beds, pulling trailers, or any other creative alternative within the event guidelines. Rest assured, every float will undergo a comprehensive city inspection to ensure a safe and enjoyable parade for all!
