Christmas Parade

The Annual City of LaFayette Christmas Parade
The Queen City of the Highlands wishes everyone a Merry Christmas—“May your Holidays “Bee” filled with Cheer!

The Annual City of LaFayette Christmas Parade is a long standing tradition in our city and has been for many, many years.

The Christmas Parade is typically held on the first Friday evening of December, with a rain date on the following Friday. The Christmas Parade for 2020, will be held on Friday, December 4, at 6:00 p.m.

Over 90 different vehicles and floats participate in the parade and give out candy as Santa rides into town on the fire truck.

The parade route begins at Ace Hardware (512 South Main St.) and travels north on Main Street through the Square. The route then turns left onto Margaret Street to the parking lot of the old LaFayette High School.

After the parade, Santa Claus makes a stop at the Gazebo at Joe Stock Memorial Park for Free Photos with Children.


Three local judges select the best floats. Each year, the Christmas Parade is aired on UCTV-265. The parade is hosted by Mayor Andy Arnold and Rachel Oesch Willeford.

For questions about the annual Christmas parade call the LaFayette Main Street office at 706-639-1550.
