The Town of Warrenton’s annual Christmas parade on Main Street will be held 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2. Premiere Hospitality in Marshall will produce the event.
The parade will proceed on the same route along Main Street as it has in the past.
Hero’s Bridge, a local nonprofit that provides services for military veterans, has been chosen by Premiere Hospitality to be this year’s parade benefactor.
The parade has kicked off the holiday season in Warrenton for many years, and it typically features more than 80 local businesses and nonprofit organizations with floats, decorated vehicles, pets and marchers. As in years past, the parade will feature the season's first glimpse of Santa Claus. Fireworks will not be part of the celebration this year.
A portion of the parade proceeds will support six distinct programs that Hero’s Bridge operates to improve the quality of life for aging veterans in Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock, Madison and Orange counties.
