Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade

42nd Annual

The 42nd Annual Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade will be held on Friday, December 1, 2017. More than 60,000 people come to view the award-winning parade featuring lighted floats, marching bands, equestrian units, giant balloons and of course Santa Claus! The parade route starts at traffic light 1A on Hwy 321 (East Parkway) and travels to Hwy 441 (Main Parkway) and continues from light 3 to traffic light 10.

This year we are honored to have for our Grand Marshall Del Bryant, son of “Rocky Top” songwriters Boudleaux and Felice Bryant, in honor of the 50th anniversary of their penning of “Rocky Top” at the Historic Gatlinburg Inn. The parade begins at 7:30 p.m. Be sure to get here early and reserve your spot.
