Starry Night Christmas Parade

Starry Night Christmas Parade

The Downtown Lenoir Starry Night Christmas Parade is a much-loved holiday tradition in the city. University and high school bands march and perform, numerous community groups and businesses enter floats, and Santa visits every year!

Theme

The theme this year is “Walking in a Winter Wonderland.” Are sleigh bells ringing? Is there a snowman in the meadow. Are you snuggling by a fire? Decorate your floats and vehicles with snowy hometown nostalgia.
