The magic and excitement of a Holiday Parade brings out the child in all of us! It is the kick-off to a season of joy and anticipation.

Where To See The Parade And Tree Lighting

The parade will begin at the intersection of Fourth and Poplar Streets and continue down Fourth to Liberty Street. Turning right on Liberty, it will proceed down to Corpening Plaza. The Annual Tree Lighting, by the City of Winston-Salem, will take place at Corpening Plaza following the parade around 6:30 pm.

What You Will See

The parade’s Grand Marshall will be Winston-Salem-born actor and producer Burgess Jenkins. Also joining the festivities will be our own Winston-Salem Dash mascot, Bolt. There will be floats, musicians, dancers, lights, sirens, excitement and fun! It’s a wonderful way to start the season.
