Celebrate the holiday season at the annual Petal Christmas Parade.  The theme for this year's parade is "Santa's Best Helpers". This parade is an area favorite and one of the few evening parades. The parade will feature the Coca-Cola Santa Truck and dozens of floats, walkers, bands, and of course, Santa.

Immediately following the parade, festivities will continue with the lighting of the Petal Christmas Tree and Celebration in the Park at Hinton Park.  Music, and photos with Santa will cap the evening.  Great fun for the whole family.
