Santa Claus speaks to the crowd at last year's downtown Morganton Christmas parade.

The Morganton Downtown Development Association invites people to line the streets of downtown for the 2019 Christmas parade today at 6 p.m.

Floats, characters and marching bands will usher in the Christmas spirit. The theme is “Trees on Parade.”

Attendees are invited to warm up with a cup of hot chocolate or a snack from on-site food vendors and enjoy the parade as it winds through the downtown streets. The route will run along Green and Sterling streets.

And for those who can’t make it out, the parade will be broadcast on CoMPAS X-Stream. Want to see the parade a second time? CoMPAS will air the parade throughout the season.

Get in the Christmas spirit at the downtown Morganton Christmas parade. The event will start at 6 p.m. sharp.

For more information, call the Morganton Main Street Office at 828-438-5280 or email info@downtownmorganton.com.
