One of my favorite things about the holiday season is how folks in just about every town across North Carolina put their own stamp on the festivities. For 81 years, the residents of Kannapolis have been celebrating with a parade.

The 2019 Cannon Pharmacy Kannapolis Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday, December 14th in downtown Kannapolis. The fun will begin at 6:00 PM from the intersection of Main St. and Dale Earnhardt Blvd. Thousands of people come out each year for this parade, so get there early to find a good viewing spot.

Because of the evening start time, Christmas lights play a big part in this event. Thousands of lights decorate the parade entries. If you’d like to participate in the parade or sponsor an award category, the deadline to register is Wednesday, November 13th at 5:00 PM. Get the details on the City of Kannapolis website.
