Is there anything more magical than Christmas? A child’s eyes full of wonder, decorated trees, the sparkling glow of Christmas lights and holiday music. These are the things that we treasure during the holidays, the memories we make with our families and friends. The City of Douglasville is proud to present its Magic on Main Street Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting slated for Friday, Dec. 7 in downtown Douglasville. Come along for a ride to a magical place filled with decorated streets and glowing parade floats. The event will begin with the parade at 6:30 p.m. on Church Street in downtown Douglasville. Following the parade, join in the fun at 7:15 p.m. as the magic of Christmas continues on O'Neal Plaza with caroling, hot chocolate, and candy canes. In addition, children can visit and take a photo with Santa beginning at 7:30 p.m. The event will conclude at 8:15 p.m. with the lighting of the tree.
The Douglasville Magic on Main Street Christmas parade offers float-makers the opportunity to design with lots of sparkle to make the event more magical for children and kids at heart. All parade float entrants are required to build their parade float with characters and decorations that represent the magic of Christmas. The City of Douglasville will be the exclusive presenter of Santa. The parade takes place at night, and all floats should incorporate lighting to dazzle spectators. Be sure to use lights rated for outdoor use. Prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third place winners.
“Douglasville's Magic on Main Street Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting is a wonderful holiday event for the whole family! The City requests that all downtown businesses decorate their store fronts to make for an even more inviting experience, and to share in the Christmas spirit,” said Marcia Hampton, Community and Downtown Services Director for the City of Douglasville. “Come on out and bring your family and friends to watch this traditional parade light up the night.”
