Christiansburg Parks and Recreation organizes the annual Christmas Parade, Christmas on the Market and Tree Lighting Ceremony each December. All of the 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. This years theme is "Presents and Holly for Christmas Jolly." The parade will be held on Monday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. The rain date for the parade is Thursday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m.
