Sign Up to Be in Akron’s Welcome Santa Parade 11/25/2017!

Santa Claus rounds out our annual WELCOME SANTA parade held yearly in downtown Akron.  In its 31st year, this parade sets the mood for post turkey, pre-Christmas flare with your favorite Akronites in tow.

Akron’s Annual Santa Holiday Parade takes place on 11/25/2017. The parade starts at 11am.

Every year over 75 different parade units make their way down Main Street, including marching bands, floats, costumed characters dance groups and a plethora of area organizations (let’s just be thankful that the parade is AFTER voting day, so a few less council people and judges! carrying Vote for Me Signs!)
