Christmas Parade

A holiday tradition for the young, and young at heart.

The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the 65th annual Winter Park “Ye Olde Hometown” Christmas Parade. The event has been held on the first Saturday in December for more than 60 years, making it the oldest continuous holiday parade in Central Florida. The parade will be held on Saturday, December 2, 2017 beginning at 9:00 a.m.

More than 100 organizations participate including marching bands, local police and fire departments, scouting groups, local dignitaries and, of course, Santa Claus.

Before and during the parade, Leadership Winter Park hosts its annual Pancake Breakfast at the Central Park stage from 7:00-10:30 a.m. Tickets include pancakes, sausage, coffee, milk, juice and fabulous toppings! Event proceeds benefit adult and youth leadership development programs.
