The Greater Valdosta Christmas Parade Committee has rescheduled the 2018 Greater Valdosta Community Christmas Parade. The parade will be held on Sunday, December 9, at 12:30 p.m. Line up for the event will begin at noon.

“I want to thank the parade committee for considering my request to reschedule the parade. The annual Christmas Parade is a staple in the community. It is a time to come together and kick off the holiday season. Many groups spend weeks, if not months preparing their floats and we want all of their hard work to be seen,” said City Manager Mark Barber. “We hope it will still be a fun time for the Valdosta/Lowndes County
Community.”

The original parade scheduled for December 1 was canceled due to inclement weather, which over the weekend brought more than 10 inches of rain to Valdosta/Lowndes County.

The parade will have a Toyland Christmas theme. It will begin at Woodrow Wilson Drive and will lead a path down Patterson Street ending at
the Department of Health’s parking lot.

If you would like to participate in the parade you can pick up an application from the Valdosta Main Street office located at 300 N Lee Street. Just bring your application and entry fee on the day of the event. If you paid a late fee or cannot participate in the rescheduled event you can request a refund from the Ossipe Temple by calling 229-269-1681.
