The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Holiday Parade promises to be a great way to start the holiday season! A favorite Chapel Hill tradition, the annual parade showcases the rich diversity of our community.
From marching bands to business leaders, youth groups, and creatively decorated floats, this event puts everyone in a festive mood.
At 10am, the parade begins in front of Morehead Planetarium and progresses through Chapel Hill on Franklin Street, ending around noon at the Carrboro Town Hall.
The event will be broadcast by The People's Channel. Music, live interviews, and commentators will be broadcast both on television and by live public address on the street. Don't miss the elves, reindeer, candy canes and of course, Santa Claus riding his sleigh!
Make sure you get there early to get a good spot to view the parade along Franklin Street and Main Street in Carrboro. More than 10,000 people are expected to line the streets to see this event.
Holiday season parking will be FREE at all municipal lots on Saturdays. For more information about parking locations visit the Downtown Partnership’s website www.parkonthehill.com.
Give the gift of giving and bring an unwrapped Toy to the Plaza to help support Orange County’s Toys for Tots campaign.
This is the sixth year that Orange County DSS will serve as the coordinator. All toys and donations stay right here in our community and are used to support the Toy Chest program.
Santa’s elves and other costumed characters will on the Plaza at 140 West Franklin Street to say thanks and enter you in a drawing for great prizes from Downtown merchants.
