2019 Christmas Parade & Festival

Christmas Parade

Santa Claus is coming to town! The City of Marianna and Main Street Marianna would like to invite the public to celebrate his arrival with the annual Christmas Parade and Festival. Entries are being sought for the 2019 Christmas Parade, which will be held at 5:30 PM on Friday, December 6th in downtown Marianna. Our theme this year is “Miracle on Main.” Main Street hopes families, churches, youth groups, civic organizations and businesses will enter a float in this year’s parade. In the interest of time and safety, we request all entries utilize a vehicle rather than walking. This is an annual fundraising event for Main Street Marianna. The entry fee for the Parade is $25.00 with proceeds going towards Main Street projects and community events. The parade will be limited to 85 entries.
The parade route will change this year with line-up on Madison Street from Clinton Street to Kelson Avenue. Parade entrants will enter Madison Street from Kelson Avenue and proceed South to an assigned spot. Line-up will be from 3:00-5:00 pm with the parade beginning at 5:30 pm.
 
Main Street is also looking for quality craft and food vendors for the Miracle on Main Festival that will be in Madison Street Park from 4:00-9:00 pm. Vendor set-up will be from 12:00-2:30 pm. The Miracle on Main will include the annual Tree Lighting, live music and children’s activities. Brand new this year, pop-up shops will open in the Historic First National Bank from 3:00 pm until the end of the parade. For those who wish to have a store front for the event booth rentals will be $25. Spots are limited.
