Christiansburg Parks and Recreation helps organize the annual Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony each December. Both events take place along Main Street in downtown Christiansburg.
Each year, the parade has a theme, and community organizations, businesses, churches, clubs, schools, troops and emergency services agencies vie to enter the most creative float.
The Tree Lighting Ceremony takes place immediately prior to the parade. Additionally, the Christiansburg Farmers' Market holds a special Christmas at the Market event before, during and after the parade on Hickok Street.
