Jacksonville Gears Up for a Double Dose of Holiday Magic: Tree Lighting and Christmas Parade

Jacksonville Tree Lighting and Parade Coming Soon

Jacksonville, AL – The city of Jacksonville is set to transform into a winter wonderland with not just one, but two back-to-back festive events that promise to kickstart the holiday season in grand style. Residents and visitors alike are invited to partake in the joyous celebrations on Monday, November 27th, and Thursday, November 30th.

The festivities commence on Monday, November 27th, at 6:00 p.m. in the heart of the city at Public Square with the highly anticipated annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. Attendees can expect a magical evening filled with enchanting performances from local talents, including the Cheaha Winds Community Band, the Kitty Stone Band and Kitty Stone Singers, and the Jacksonville High School Jazz Band. The highlight of the evening will undoubtedly be the appearance of the one and only Santa Claus. Adding an unexpected twist to the festive atmosphere, a localized blizzard courtesy of Eagle Party Rentals promises to transport attendees into a winter wonderland right in the heart of Jacksonville.

The community is encouraged to come together for this heartwarming event, marking the official beginning of the Christmas season in Jacksonville.

The festivities don’t end there. On November 30th at 6:30 p.m., Jacksonville invites everyone to line the streets for the annual Jacksonville Christmas Parade. The parade route kicks off at Pelham Plaza, just across from Johnson’s, and proceeds north on Pelham Road, culminating at the Houston Cole Library on the Jacksonville State University campus. This promises to be an evening filled with the spirit of the season, featuring festive floats, marching bands, and perhaps a surprise appearance from Santa Claus himself.

Both events are sure to offer a delightful experience for individuals and families, bringing the Jacksonville community together to celebrate the magic of the holidays. As the snow falls on Monday night, Jacksonville is ready to welcome the joy and merriment of the Christmas season with open arms. Don’t miss the chance to be part of these magical moments, and we’ll see you there, spreading holiday cheer throughout the city.
