It’s the most wonderful time of the year sharing the holiday experience with family and friends. Experience the joy and laughter as Snellville celebrates our 35th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting and 3rd Annual Lighted Christmas Parade.

We invite you to join us at our 3rd Annual Lighted Christmas Parade which will kick off the festivities for our event. The parade will start at Wisteria Plaza at 5:30 PM and end by the Towne Green. Thousands of people lined the streets last year to watch the many lighted floats, tractors, and trucks that passed by. And of course, Santa will be found at the end of the parade riding up in a horse drawn carriage.

The Snellville Tourism and Trade mascot, STAT the CAT will be joined by many other mascots in the parade this year including: Chopper, Hope and Will from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Stevi B, Chick-fil-A Cow and many others.

Celebrate the holiday tradition with an evening full of family fun and activities for the entire family.
