While others are freezing their tails off, you and your little ones will be cozy and warm, enjoying Krispy Kreme doughnuts and Black Hand Coffee, while you take in the sights and sounds the Christmas Parade.  Have little ones who need to potty?  No problem!  Restrooms will be available at the Parade Party as well! 

When the parade ends, shuttle buses will take you and your family back to The Diamond where you will hop in your car and head home, easy peasy! What better way to enjoy the parade? You and Dad don’t have to worry about parking, snacks, potty breaks, or the cold weather.  This will be a holiday experience that you and your family will never forget!
