The Downtown Piqua Holiday Parade will be on Saturday, December 3 at 2 p.m. and we would love for YOU to be a part of this great hometown tradition.

The parade is a delightful family-friendly event and we are inviting many types of units to participate including bands, drill teams, floats, antique cars, fire departments, youth groups, churches, clubs and civic organizations. Our goal is to promote as many Piqua organizations and businesses as possible and this year’s parade theme of “A Snoopy Kind of Christmas” will make it very easy for everyone to participate. (2022 marks the 100th birthday of Charles Schulz the creator of the comic strip Peanuts.)

The Downtown Piqua Holiday Parade is a part of a the “Holiday Experiences in Piqua” weekend that includes Christmas on the Green on Friday night (December 2) from 6 – 9 p.m.  We will have carriage rides, live entertainment, live reindeer, children’s activities and food – there is something for the whole family. You can also enjoy the Downtown Piqua Holiday Open House Friday and Saturday, December 2 & 3. The Parade is held on Saturday afternoon and the Holly Jolly 5K/10K run will be held on Saturday, December 10.
