Must-See Christmas Parades Across the Country - Family Traveller (USA)

There’s just something exciting about the Christmas season — cooler temperatures, the excitement of gift buying, family time together and tree lightings. Christmas parades are popular in many cities across the country, and nothing will get you in the mood for the season faster. Here are a selection of not-to-be-missed celebrations in different parts of the country for 2017.

Branson, Missouri

This Ozark town’s Adoration Celebration Parade will be on December 3rd this year, and starts with the annual lighting of the town’s large nativity scene, which overlooks Lake Taneycomo. This parade is billed as celebrating the true meaning of Christmas, and not the commercial version that is seen in many places. There will be floats, an appearance from St. Nick, and performances by local high school marching bands.
