Join us in kicking off the holiday season at the sixth annual City of Hickory Christmas parade and tree lighting, sponsored by Lowes Foods. The parade begins at 6:00 p.m. in Downtown Hickory and will be immediately followed by the tree lighting with Santa and Mrs. Claus on Union Square. Music by Hickory Music Factory and visits with Mr. and Mrs. Claus will continue until 8:30 p.m. Numerous downtown businesses will remain open throughout the event and offer specials, making the evening a great time for patrons to begin their holiday shopping. Also, visitors can stop by the Hickory Downtown Development Association’s table to write a letter to Santa, and mail it to the North Pole. Make it a full night of fun and festivities downtown.
For questions about the parade, please contact Senior Recreation Programmer Kyle Mishler at (828) 261-2259 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
