Poinsettia Christmas Parade

Poinsettia Christmas Parade

December 1, 2018

For more than 75 years, the Poinsettia Christmas Parade has signaled the start of the holiday season in Greenville. Each year the parade attracts thousands of visitors downtown to view the holiday floats and activities. What better way to kick off the holiday season than by volunteering at the parade! Volunteers receive a free meal, coffee and a limitless amount of holiday cheer!

Volunteer Positions

Lineup Attendant's will be stationed at County Square prior to the start of the parade and will assist in making sure floats are lined up in the correct space. 

Individuals must be 10 years of age or older to volunteer. Volunteers ages 10-13 must have a parent or guardian volunteering with them. 

Sign up to volunteer.
