The Jaycee Christmas Parade Is A Treasured Tradition In The Greenville Community…
For the over 30 years, the Greenville Jaycees have provided an exciting beginning to the holiday season in Greenville. The Greenville Christmas Parade, which is typically held on the first Saturday of December, marches through the Uptown Greenville area giving thousands of citizens their first celebration of the Christmas holidays.
