46th Annual Bryson City Christmas Parade

December 4, 2 pm

This year, the Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade departs from its tradition of honoring a single Swain County citizen as grand marshall. Instead, the parade will acknowledge and celebrate the actions of the county’s medical care professionals, our emergency services, our teachers, our service members, our non-profits, and our churches – in short, all those who have and continue to do so much in our community to help others.

While the event is always magical, this year’s ‘Spirit of Service’ parade will be even more special as we honor our neighbors and friends who dedicate themselves to the health and well-being of our community.

Be sure to make this one of your annual holiday traditions.

Of course, all Christmas parades conclude with the appearance of Santa, traditionally escorted by a bright red fire truck — except for one year when the volunteer fire departments’ alarms sounded mid-parade. The procession ground to a halt and moved to one side as all the engines roared past, sirens blaring.
