Warrenton Christmas Parade 2017
Warrenton Christmas Parade
The Warrenton Christmas Parade is returning after winning the “Best Annual Event” for a fifth year in a row from the Piedmont Lifestyle Magazine as voted on by the community. The parade will again travel down historic Main Street allowing thousands of spectators to witness Fauquier County’s first community Christmas Parade of the season. On December 1, 2017 at 6pm, Mayor Powell Duggan and his special guest will illuminate the town’s Christmas tree on the courthouse steps at the conclusion of the parade followed by exhilarating fireworks to brighten anybody’s holiday season.
This year, the parade will be at night allowing participants to decorate their floats with Christmas lights to illuminate Main Street Warrenton as the parade passes by excited children of all ages. The parade will join two great holiday celebrations, Warrenton’s annual parade and Gum Drop Square’s opening, sponsored by the Partnership for Warrenton. Join Santa Clause after he glides down Main Street in his one horse open sleigh and lights the Christmas tree. He will then open Gum Drop Square at the John Barton Payne Building at the conclusion of the parade.
