The Garner Christmas Parade is a citizen-led community Christmas Parade.  Our goal is to create and host a festive and family-friendly Christmas Parade that reflects Garner’s values and one that is local, inclusive, and bridges Garner’s past with Garner’s future. The holiday season is about love, kindness, and giving. It is families and our community coming together to celebrate our town and making great memories for our kids and all of us that are kids at heart.
