The 64th Annual Christmas Parade – a longtime Colonial Heights tradition - will occur on Tuesday, December 6, 2016 on the Boulevard. Originated in 1953 by the Colonial Heights Optimist Club, the nighttime parade is a unique event that draws people from all over the Tri-Cities area. Since 1961, the parade has been organized by the Colonial Heights Jaycees - making the parade a true community event. Beginning in 2014, the City of Colonial Heights assumed management of the Annual Christmas Parade.
The 2016 parade theme is “Peace on Earth”.
