Grand Ridge Christmas Parade and Festival

Event Dates and Times

12/8/2017 - Starts: 4:00 PM
John Thomas Porter Park 6951 Florida St, Grand Ridge, FL 32442
You are invited to participate in the Grand Ridge Christmas Parade sponsored by the Town of Grand Ridge. There are no entry fees for units that want to participate. We would like for all businesses, churches, schools, individuals, and any other organizations to be involved in our parade this year. The parade will start at Hall Street (next to the Town Hall) and turn East on Florida Street. It will end at John Thomas Porter Park (see map). We are hoping that everyone will gather for the Festival afterwards. The festival starts immediately after the parade.

Santa Clause will be taking the children’s Christmas lists and handing out candy canes to all the girls and boys. So make sure you bring your camera. The Town will be serving hot dogs and chili. We will have some special activities and games for the kids.

NOTE: You are allowed to throw candy during the parade. You may mail or fax your entry form as needed, but a form must be completed in order to participate in the parade. You must also call Town Hall at (850) 592-4621 to obtain your entry number prior to the parade.

All entries are due by November 30, 2017. All late entries will be placed at the end of the parade in front of Santa Clause.
