From the organizers:
“The event will be like no other Raleigh Christmas Parade we have seen in the event’s history,” said Jennifer Martin, Executive Director of Shop Local Raleigh. “
While this year’s parade will not be held live on city streets, we can guarantee that it will still have pageantry, music, special guests, performances and much more. The event will be sure to entertain and help our community create new memories safely, at home.
“The annual Raleigh Christmas parade is such an important way for the community to come together in a longtime tradition, and also to connect with their local small businesses especially during these times,” said Rob Elmore, president and general manager of ABC11.
“Despite the challenges of this unprecedented time that prevented a physical gathering, we are confident that presenting the parade virtually will help in preserving the tradition and delivering a way for the community to still safely experience it.”
