The 70th Annual Colonial Heights Christmas Parade will take place Tuesday, December 5 at 7:00 p.m. on the Boulevard. The nighttime parade is managed by the City of Colonial Heights and is a unique event that draws people from all over the Tri-Cities area. Our 2023 parade theme is Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.


On behalf of the City of Colonial Heights, I would like to invite your business or organization to be a part of enriching this tradition and celebrating the City’s 75th anniversary by entering a float, band, marching unit or as a sponsor for this years’ parade. Organizations may enter a maximum of three units per entry (float, marching group, etc.), that must reflect a holiday theme, or the theme chosen by the parade committee. All entries must include a float or holiday performance. There are no additional fees associated with entering more than one unit.


The Annual Christmas Parade of year’s past evokes fond memories for many long-time residents of Colonial Heights and neighboring communities. Please find our 2023 Regulations Information attached, and be a part of this longstanding holiday experience.
