December 4 | 6-9pm | Congress Street | Parade & Christmas Tree Lighting

The 81st Annual Christmas Parade begins December 4, 2020 at 6PM rain or shine. This year Santa is escorted through each of the City’s neighborhoods, an approximately 24 Mile Route with a procession of Holiday Cheer. The 24-mile route is a record-setting length for York! A detailed parade route will be provided later in November.

We ask that all residents along the route decorate and light up their homes and yards as they prepare for Santa’s arrival. Please practice social distancing along the entire parade route.

Some of our 4-wheeled friends and others from 2019 are back. You might say the parade route is Primed for excitement!

December 12 | 6:30-7:30pm | Buster Boyd Bridge (Lawn by Papa Docs Shore Club) | Holiday Boat Parade 

One of the highlights of the Christmas season in Lake Wylie is the annual “Lights on the Lake” boat parade. Launched from Papa Docs Shore Club, the brightly lit boats sail towards the Buster Boyd Bridge, circle around in front of Riverpointe, and pass by the Lake Wylie boat landing. Most of the crowds gather along the shorelines of Lake Wylie near the boat landing, and cheer favorites as they sail by.
