'tis the season to be jolly
The holiday season of historic Merry-etta is one you won't want to miss. From our gorgeous brick streets decorated with snow to the sounds of a horse-drawn carriage in the distance and our buildings strung up with lights, downtown Marietta is the #1 place for shopping & dining.
Our annual evening holiday parade will include floats, dance routines, carolers, and much more, all complete with festive Christmas lights. As usual, Santa Claus will make his appearance in the parade as well! After the parade, view the lighting of the City of Marietta's Christmas Tree at the Armory. This year's parade is on Saturday, November 25th at 6 p.m.
Thanks to the incredible support of local radio station WMOA, our Christmas Parade will be live on-air for all to enjoy, emceed by Marietta Main Street & WMOA. Each float will have the opportunity to submit an ad to be read live on-air during our Parade.
All Parade Registrants may now process all registration of floats online using the link below.
Parade fees are $35 through 11/13 and are $55 after, through the day of the Parade.
First Friday in December is extra-special just in time for holiday shopping. Downtown shops stay open until 11 p.m. and offer big promotions, some as much as 50% off each purchase! Mark your calendars, grab your holiday list, and head downtown for this once-a-year special event!
