Head to Owensboro for One of Kentucky’s Best Christmas Parades

Often regarded as the best Christmas parade in Kentucky, you can head over to Owensboro for a night of magic and memories on Saturday, November 19 at 4:30 p.m. 


Held by Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade Association, this year’s parade is going to be one for the books, with more than 100 floats bedazzled in lights making their way through downtown Owensboro. 


You can grab your entire family and bundle up for this event, sitting roadside with or without your own chairs to keep you comfortable throughout the hour-long experience. 


Not only will there be tons of decked-out floats to keep you entertained, but marching bands will play music, holiday songs will belt out from vehicles, and character appearances will have your kiddos super excited to sit up front and score some free candy! 


While at the parade, you can purchase hot chocolate and warm snacks from food vendors, as well as cotton candy and light-up toys that make the parade experience as magical as it gets. 


And, of course, you won’t want to miss the man of the hour himself – Santa – as he finishes the parade out with a grand finale entrance. 


Make a whole night of the Christmas Parade by spending the night in Owensboro and checking out its beauty at the beginning of winter. The Christmas Parade is free to attend and welcomes people of all ages.
