Mooresville’s 67th Annual Christmas Parade is being held Tuesday, November 22nd (2011) on Main Street in Historic Downtown Mooresville kicking off at 3:30pm!
What, Mooresville’s Christmas Parade is before Thanksgiving? It is a long story, but I guess each town around Lake Norman and Charlotte was designated a different week for their parades and Mooresville ended up with the Tuesday before Thanksgiving!
Every year our annual Mooresville Christmas Parade just keeps getting bigger and better yet organizers work hard to make sure it retains its ‘home town’ feel.
With 160 floats, bands and vehicles (3500 participants in all) this year’s parade will be the longest in Mooresville’s 67 years!
The Parade, as always, will be on Main Street in Historic Downtown Mooresville beginning at Statesville Avenue and ending at Mills Avenue at the former Burlington Mill–a block farther than in previous years.
You really must stay until the end, not only to see Santa but, according to parade organizer Ron Johnson, “The float preceding the bearded fellow’s — sponsored by a business called Keeping it Green– will contain a small forest of lighted Christmas tress engulfed in blowing snow. It’s pretty incredible!”
The Mooresville Christmas Parade is put on by the Mooresville Convention and Visitors Bureau. For more information, call 704.662.8210.
