2020 Annual Christmas Parade



This year’s Christmas parade theme is Christmas is... We ask that each parade participant design their entry around what they feel that Christmas is.  All float entries must be received by Monday, November 30, 2020 at 5:00 PM. 

Elm Street will be one-way after 6:00 PM on that day of the parade. To come to line up, enter Elm Street from either George Wallace or Academy Street due to  Elm Street being "one-way" beginning at 6PM. NO through-traffic will be allowed, please use Walnut Street / Library for necessary drop-offs. Please do not come to line-up or start lining up until after 6:00 PM.  We would like every entry in place in the line-up  by 6:30 PM; therefore, please come to line-up before that time.

No throwing candy.  This will be STRICTLY ENFORCED!!  We would like to discourage you having a Santa on your entry to keep confusion down for the kids.  There is a Santa at the end of the parade for the children.

Please be careful.  All persons riding floats or moving vehicles must stay on the float or vehicle until the end of the parade where unloading is permitted (Troy Public Library).

The route will start on Elm Street and follow Elm Street to the square.  The parade will turn left at Oak Street and travel around the Square backwards turning right onto Three Notch. The parade will then will turn right onto E. Walnut Street and end at the Troy Public Library.

Out of an abundance of caution, there will not be a Tree Lighting Ceremony or Pictures with Santa after this year’s parade.  Please wear your mask and practice social distancing along the parade route.
