Once you have finally finished your Thanksgiving leftovers, it’s time to get ready for the holiday season. You want to have an amazing time this year with family and friends, which means that you’ll likely want to get out to all the fun events going on around town. But there’s one that you definitely can’t miss, and that’s the Decatur Christmas Parade. Going to this parade is the perfect way to get your holiday season off to a bright and merry start. Bring your whole family along, and don’t leave your friends behind, either!
This year, the Decatur Christmas Parade is going to take place on Saturday, Dec. 7. It will be held in the Decatur Downtown Historic District right in the heart of town. The parade starts at 4:30 p.m. and will go until 6:30 p.m. However, there are going to be a lot of people there, so you’re probably going to want to get there a bit early, so you can find the best spot in the house.
What to Expect
You’ve probably been to plenty of parades before, but there’s a good chance that you’ve never seen anything like this local parade. It’s going to be filled with amazing floats, holiday music, and, of course, lots of candy. Be sure to check out the local celebrities who will be there, as well.
Build a Float
Sure, you know you definitely want to go to the parade. But what if you actually want to be a part of it? If you are a part of an organization or group that wants to participate in the parade, you can easily apply to build your own float. Just be sure to do that as soon as possible, so you have a slot available!

All for Charity
The holiday season is definitely about having fun and spending time with family and friends, but even more importantly than that, it’s about giving back to the community in any way you can. Luckily, that’s just what this parade is designed to do. The proceeds from the event will benefit DECU’s Charity of the Year, which is Macon Resources Inc. This organization helps adults and children with disabilities get the assistance they need to live happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives. Just by showing up, you’re making a positive impact in your community.
