2018 Christmas Parade

The 2018 Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade is Saturday, November 17 at 4:30 p.m.!  The public is invited to join the annual celebration the Saturday after Thanksgiving in downtown Owensboro, “where Kentucky starts Christmas.”

The theme for this year’s Christmas parade is “Our Christmas Wish” with an expected 120 floats and other entries, making it the first and largest Christmas parade in the tristate area. Vendors, Christmas floats, music and even Santa Claus will be in attendance for the big event!

The reigning Miss Kentucky Katie Bouchard will serve as Grand Marshal of the 82nd annual Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade.  The parade stretches along 2nd Street between Pearl and Locust streets in the beautiful downtown riverfront area.


Welcome in the season with smiles, laughs, fond memories and, of course, Christmas spirit!
