Travelers Rest Christmas Parade

Presented by Greater Travelers Rest Chamber of Commerce

On Saturday, December 10, 2022 the Greater Travelers Rest Chamber of Commerce and City of Travelers Rest will proudly host Travelers Rest Annual Christmas Parade. This year’s event will feature an overall theme (Songs of Christmas) and awards for the best entries.

What is the new parade route?

The 2022 Parade route will start on Plaza Drive (in front of George Coleman Ford and Bank of TR), will then fork onto N. Poinsett Highway and then continue onto Center Street. The parade will then turn left onto Main Street and continue through ending at City Hall. We then hope you’ll join us at Trailblazer Park, where we’ll visit with Santa and enjoy the TRFM Very Merry Christmas Market from 12:30pm-4:30pm.  Signage will be placed along the route to alert the public of the new starting point.

What does the theme “Songs of Christmas” mean?

Think of your favorite Christmas Song…now think of it as a it Silver Bells? Are you Dreaming of a White Christmas? Maybe Santa Claus is Coming to Town? Get creative!  The interpretation of the theme is up to each individual entrant; we can’t wait to see how everyone decorates!

What awards will be given this year?

Awards will be given to the first and second place in each category, and an overall Grand Prize Winner will be chosen.

All local businesses and community groups are invited to be a part of the parade by entering a decorated float, performance group, or vehicle in keeping with the theme: SONGS OF CHRISTMAS.
