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

    The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the 66th annual Winter Park “Ye Olde Hometown” Christmas Parade. The event has been held each December for more than 60 years, making it the oldest continuous holiday parade in Central Florida. 

    Each year the parade travels down Park Avenue, starting at Cole Avenue and proceeding south, ending at Lyman Avenue. More than 80 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.
