One of our absolute favorite Christmas time attractions happens in Fall River this year.

My kids are getting older and as much as they pretend to be ok with going to holiday parades with mom and dad, we know they're over it. But because we have young nieces and nephews who are BIG into Santa and the Christmas parades, we get to keep the spirit alive, so to speak. We're very excited about this year's Fall River Holiday Parade coming next month.

Fall River Development News announced that the 35th Annual Fall River Children’s Holiday Parade is scheduled to step off at 1 p.m. on Saturday, December 7. The Children’s Holiday Parade Committee and Greater Fall River RE-CREATION invite you to kick-off the holidays in Fall River.

Parade Route: Kennedy Park down South Main Street ending at the corner of Central and Bedford St.

Some of the fun highlights to make note of are:

• One of the largest Children’s Holiday Parade in New England
• A number of High School Bands throughout New England, Giant Parade Balloons, Local Fire and Police Departments, Beautifully Decorated Floats, Marching Groups, Motorized Units, and Costume Characters.
• Participation from the Fall River Public Schools and other local schools.
• Visit from Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. This, being the most important part of the event for the little kiddos who are so excited for Santa to visit their house this Christmas.🎅🏼

We'll see you at the BIG Christmas parade next month.🎄
