Hometown Holidays Parade in Downtown Forsyth GA


Join us for this wonderful nighttime parade, the only one of its kind in Central Georgia! Held annually in downtown Forsyth, the Hometown Holidays Parade is one of the most anticipated events of the year. Parade-goers fill downtown Forsyth to enjoy waving to neighbors, seeing kids ride a float they created, singing along to the music, and the friendly competition of the float contest.  And, who can forget the best part? Seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus at the end!

This year’s theme is “Christmas Miracle on Main Street.”

Applications are due by November 14th, 2016.
