  • December 8 | 9 AM - 10:30 AM | Park Avenue, Winter Park


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

    The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the 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.


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

    For additional information, sponsorship and other inquiries, contact Ally Stricker at astricker@winterpark.org or call (407) 644-8281.

    Applications for the 2018 parade will be released in August 2018. All applications will be due October 2018.
