This year's City of Roanoke Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday, December 9 at 6:00pm. This is a one-year-only change due to Franklin Rd Bridge construction and detour route along Jefferson St.

Costumed characters, strolling carolers, marching bands, jugglers, and numerous community groups all highlighting various holiday traditions are just a few of the unique things you will see filling up the streets as this parade strolls through downtown. The parade route begins at the corner of Elm Avenue and Jefferson Street (Elmwood Park) and continues north on Jefferson Street to Campbell Avenue, then east on Campbell to Market Square.
