The Children's Christmas Parade of Atlanta Is Coming Soon

Enjoy the holiday season with family at the Christmas Parade Downtown Atlanta.


If you're looking for a winter holiday event for children in the Atlanta area, head to The Children's Christmas Parade of Atlanta. This festive event will be held on Saturday, December 5, 2015, from 10:30 a.m. until 12 p.m. It is the biggest holiday parade in the southeastern part of the United States, so don't miss out on all the fun.

Thousands of people will line the parade route on Peachtree Street. You might want to arrive early to get a good view of the show. If you want to make sure you have an ideal vantage point, purchase bleacher seats and bring blankets to snuggle up with your family.

Your children will see festive features everywhere they look. Giant balloons will float overhead. Floats decorated with winter holiday themes will travel along the parade route, and marching bands will play holiday music as Santa steals the show. In previous years, participants in the parade have dressed up as dancing Christmas trees, clowns and horses to spread holiday cheer.

You won't have to deal with any holiday traffic on your way to the parade because there are two Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority train stations along the route. The Arts Center station is near the beginning of the parade route, and the Midtown station is approximately halfway along the route. If you don't mind walking a few blocks, you can take MARTA to the North Avenue station approximately four blocks from the end of the parade route.

Make your trip to the parade even more enjoyable by staying at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel & Conference Center near the parade route. Take a look at the Marriott Buckhead website to find out about our deluxe accommodations.
