The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the 62nd annual Winter Park “Ye Olde Hometown” Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 5 starting at 9a. The event has been held on the first Saturday in December for more than 60 years, making it the longest-running holiday parade in Central Florida.
Each year the parade travels down Park Avenue, starting at Cole Avenue and proceeding south to Comstock Avenue. More than 100 units participate including marching bands, local police and fire departments, scouting groups, local dignitaries and, of course, Santa Claus.
Before and during the parade, Leadership Winter Park will host their annual Pancake Breakfast at the Central Park stage from 7:00-10:30 a.m. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for children. Proceeds benefit Winter Park area elementary schools. Learn more about the Pancake Breakfast here.
