Due to forecast deteriorating and severe weather conditions, the 44th Annual Cashiers Christmas Parade will NOT be held as scheduled. Instead, join us for the Cashiers Christmas Parade Block Party on Tuesday, 12/11, 3:30 to 5:30 on Frank Allen Road where floats, entertainment, and Santa & Mrs. Claus will host a ‘Parade Promenade” for the public to enjoy. Cashiers Cares will host their traditional fund raising meal at the firehouse. Frank Allen Road will be closed to vehicular traffic from the Recreation center to the Fire dDepartment. See the Cashiers Area Chamber Facebook page
and below map for additional details. Please attend and support our parade participants who enthusiastically prepared for this special event.
This year’s theme is “Over the River and Through the Woodes” in celebration of Camp Merrie-Woode’s centennial anniversary who will serve as this year’s Grand Marshal. Participants are encouraged to feature “Merrie Mountain Christmas Traditions” on their entries.
Parade lineup and check-in will start at 11:00 a.m. Saturday morning at the South entrance of Cashiers School Road by Cashiers United Methodist Church. Cashiers School Road will remain one way beginning Saturday morning in preparation for parade participants’ safety during line-up.
The one-mile parade route will start at Cornucopia Restaurant and head North on Hwy 107 toward the Crossroads then turn West on US Highway 64 ending at the Cashiers Community Center on Frank Allen Road for the annual Cashiers Cares Community Luncheon and meet and greet with Santa.
Parade participants will be announced and broadcast live on Live.HighSouthAdventures.com from the Crossroads so that friends and family unable to attend the parade in person can still enjoy the festivities.
Per tradition, the coveted Tiger Marching Band will again anchor the parade typically averaging 60 entries. Animal entries are abundant as well as personalized floats, trailers, vintage vehicles, fire engines, walking participants and more.
Parade Awards will be announced in the Crossroads Chronicle after the event.
