Make plans to kick off the holiday season at the 44th annual Collierville Christmas Parade.
The much-loved event is back after being cancelled last year due to Covid-19. The parade will take place on Dec 3 at 7 p.m. and will run until 9:30 p.m.
Last year’s event was cancelled due to COVID-19 precautions.
Spectators can expect a flurry of activity and the sights and sounds of a traditional Christmas Parade.
The parade route, which is almost one mile long, starts just south of Antebellum Way on Byhalia Road and runs north along Byhalia Road to West Collierville Middle School. The parade will be made up of decorated floats and performances from seventy community organizations, eleven of which are from Collierville Schools.
Mayor Stan Joyner and the Board of Alderman, along with their families, will also be joining the festivities from a large holiday float.
The 2019 Collierville Person of the Year, Alderman Maureen Fraser, and 2020 Collierville Person of the Year Mark Hansen will have the honor of leading the parade as Grand Marshalls.
Another very important person, Santa Claus, will be making an appearance from his brand new sleigh that was designed by Town elves.
Those unable to attend in person, you can watch the whole parade via livestream on the Collierville Police Department’s Facebook page at facebook.com/colliervillepd.
In case of inclement weather, a rain date has been set for Dec. 4.
