The annual City of LaFayette Christmas Parade has been a long standing tradition in LaFayette.  The Christmas Parade is held the first Friday night of December, with a rain date of the following Friday.

The Christmas Parade for 2017 will be held on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.  Over 75 different vehicles and floats participate in the parade, give out candy, and Santa rides into town on the firetruck.

The parade route will begin at Ace Hardware (512 South  Main St.) and travel north on Main Street through the Square turning left onto Margaret Street to the parking lot of the old LaFayette High School.

After the parade, Santa Claus will be at the gazebo at Joe Stock Park for free photos with children.

3 local judges will select the best floats, and this year’s Christmas parade will be aired on UCTV 265. The parade will be hosted by Mayor Andy Arnold and Rachel Oesch Willeford.
