2021 Tree Lighting Ceremony & Festivities – Saturday, Dec 4th @ 6 PM
2021 Christmas Parade – Sat, Dec 4th @ 6:30 PM (Rain date: Sat, Dec 11)
more details forthcoming
This year, due to a required approval of a large event by the State COVID -19
guidelines, the Christmas Tree Lighting will be held the same day prior to the parade on Saturday, December 5th beginning at 6:00 p.m. with the parade following at 6:30 p.m.
As a result of this change, and in order to be in compliance with the
State requirements, there will not be any visits or pictures with Santa hosted by the City this year. Santa will, however, be in attendance in the Christmas Parade as usual.
Again, we realize that everyone would like for events to return to what we like to call “normal”, but as a Governmental entity, we must comply with the State and CDC guidelines. We are fortunate that the State did approve for us to continue with the Parade this year, as not all requests are being approved. We are grateful!
We hope to see you on Saturday, December 5 th for the Christmas Tree Lighting at 6:00 p.m. and Christmas Parade at 6:30 p.m.! (Note: Saturday, December 12 th at 6:30 p.m. is the scheduled rain date for the Parade only.)
Due to Covid-19 requirements by the State Department of Commerce and CDC recommendations, approved SC Events in excess of 250 attendees, require appropriate group social distancing and masks. This is an approved SC Department of Commerce event.
