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.

Typically, over 150 entrants march through the parade including numerous Girl Scout and Boy Scout Troops, several high school bands including JH Rose, DH Conley and South Central as well as local groups such as the American Red Cross, The Pitt County Humane Society and local merchants. Many media outlets participate in the event each year including WITN and Cable 7 – who often televise the event live for the their viewers, as well as WNCT TV and many radio stations. Sponsorships pay for numerous expenses associated with the parade including performance fees, float rentals, and insurance.
