Last year we slept in and missed the Raleigh Christmas Parade fun. Not this year! This year, we’re going all out and want to see you there!
Join us on Saturday, November 18, beginning at 8:30 a.m. for one of the best views of the Raleigh Christmas Parade!
We will have hot chocolate, hot coffee, apple cider, and for the grown-ups… all the tasty ways to make those drinks a little warmer on a chilly late-fall morning. (Hint, Hint: Irish Coffee, Spiked Cider, Baileys Hot Chocolate… you name it.)
Arrive early for complimentary bleacher seating for the first 100 guests. The parade kicks off at 9:40 a.m.
After the Parade
The party continues on Saturday with live music from David Dyer and The Crooked Smile Band performing from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
David Dyer & The Crooked Smile Band are a superbly talented group of veteran musicians from several of North Carolina’s finest bands. The Crooked Smile Band has been crafting their own brand of Americana inspired roots-rock since 1999 and have released 3 independent albums to date. The boys are now out supporting their latest effort, “Taproot”, a gospel-inspired collection of original tunes.
