Gibsonville’s Christmas Parade to Add to Your Holiday Fun Calendar

There’s something to be said for a good old-fashioned Christmas Parade complete with floats, bands, dance groups, horses, and entertainment that thrills you and your family.  On your calendar for Christmas in Gibsonville this year, you’ll want to mark Saturday, December 13 at 2:00 pm so you won’t miss a minute of the celebration taking place along our city streets.  You can see Santa and Mrs. Claus before he heads back to the North Pole to finish up his toy-making duties and enjoy some of the music provided by our local school bands who are worked tirelessly to make your Christmas joyful and bright.
Before the parade begins or as it winds down you may want to grab a quick bite in one of the local restaurants or do some last minute Christmas shopping in one of the stores along Main Street.  Supporting your local businesses and eateries can help to make the season more enjoyable for everyone. Take time to stroll along with your children and share stories with them especially if you grew up in Gibsonville about what Christmas was once like in this quaint little town.  If you’re new to the area, it’s fun to chat with some of the local residents about the history of Gibsonville and how it became known as the “city of the roses.”  Take the children by the Gibsonville Museum which is open on the third Saturday of each month from 10:00 am until 1 pm and learn about the history of this region rich in tradition like the annual Christmas Parade. 

The Parks and Recreation Department of Gibsonville does a great deal to keep activities interesting and unique for you as you live, work, and play here.  They work diligently to keep the Christmas Parade each year a fun-filled event that you can photograph and remember for years to come.  Be sure that you bundle up the children, grab a cup of hot chocolate, and come enjoy the splendor of the Christmas parade in Gibsonville this year.
