Christmas is almost here, so you know what that means! Greenville’s annual Christmas Parade is just around the corner! The Greenville Tourism Commission is pleased to announce that it will once again be held on the first weekend in December on Saturday, December 7th at 5:00 pm.

This year’s theme is “Scout out Christmas” in honor of the Greenville’s Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Troop 40, who will be this year’s Grand Marshals. Troop 40 is celebrating their 76th anniversary in 2014. The BSA organization provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. For the last 76 years Troop 40 has been played an active role in building the future leaders of this community and country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. As part of the festivities, any current or past members of Troop 40 are invited to attend the parade and ride a special float honoring troop members! For more info please call Beth Newman at 270-338-1895.

Anyone and everyone is invited to attend and participate! Just contact Beth Newman, of the Greenville Tourism Commission, at 270-338-1895 or Dorothy Walker at 270-754-2360, of the Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce, to register your float or entry. Please click on the link below to find answers to the most frequently asked questions as well as a copy of the rules. You will also find a copy of the 2014 registration form which needs to be turned in prior to the parade.

There's nothing like a little cash in your pocket and some bragging rights!

Greenville has a wonderful parade lined up, so come on out and participate in this annual community event. It’s just not Christmas without a good parade!

In the event of significant rain or snow the parade officials will make the decision to cancel the event. It will then be re-scheduled for Sunday, December 7th at 3:00 pm.
