Christmas Parade



Cruisin’ Homewood Christmas Parade

Sunday, December 6th – 6:30pm-8:30pm 


We are happy to announce the 2020 Christmas Parade has not been cancelled.  Due to COVID-19, we do not want to put our community at additional risk, so we are reversing the parade process. Instead of having the traditional parade move on a set route past crowds of people, we are modifying the parade, so our community can celebrate by doing the reverse.
In our cruisin’ parade, parade entries will remain stationary while spectators drive through the parade route to observe the parade. It will be similar to a drive-thru light display. The drive-thru format will allow for spacing between parade entries and no direct contact with the public.
