christmas parade2 300GREENVILLE, Ky. (12/2/19) — Greenville Tourism Commission says the holidays are always a busy time of year, and there is nothing like a small town Christmas parade to bring the community together and kick off the holiday season.

The Greenville Christmas parade is held the first Saturday in December. This year's parade falls on Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. In order to pay tribute to the national holiday, Greenville Tourism spokesperson Colbi Ferguson said the theme is “Remembering our Past and Honoring our Veterans.”

"We will have several tributes to our military throughout the parade, including the National Anthem sang by Cathy Mullins, military vehicles, color and honor guard troops, VFW participation, veterans and active duty military personnel’s participation," Ferguson said. "We are honored to have Greenville oldest veteran, Ralph Bryant, as our Grand Marshal."

There are also a few changes to the parade. The staging and check-in has been relocated and the parade will march south down Main Street instead of north as in years past, officials said. Parade officials believe this will be more efficient, provide a better viewing experience, as well a safer route.

There will also be free kids activities on the Crossing leading up to the start of the parade.
