Thanks to community feedback, a continuous evaluation of safety needs, and new state laws – we are making some big changes to our Holiday Parade this year. These modifications include a new start-time, different start and endpoints, a new entry application format, and a mandatory safety meeting for every parade entry. We are grateful to be able to make these changes and preserve this beloved tradition.
Saturday, December 2nd, the parade will begin at 11am, kicking off from the SECU parking lot on N. Main Street. We will be limiting parade entries to 75, and accepting applications exclusively through an online platform. The online application will require a $20 registration fee, and will go live on our website on October 1st. This $20 fee will go directly to the Weaverville Cops for Kids 2023 Fund. Every parade entry will be required to send a representative to a mandatory safety meeting – these meetings will last one hour and take place at Town Hall in November.
This application will be open until we hit 75 entries, or Nov. 5th – whichever happens first.
