The City of Fredericksburg, Virginia Parks & Recreation Department and Huber Motor Cars are excited to fill the streets with Christmas cheer at the 2016 Christmas Parade!

December 3, 2016 beginning at 5:30pm 

We are longer accepting parade entries. Registration is closed.

Check out the Facebook page of our media sponsor B101.5 for pictures from last year!

In the truest Christmas Spirit, since 2014, we’ve been able to donate $8,000 to the Fraternal Order of Police #15 Cops and Kids Project to help them take needy children shopping for Christmas.
