The City of Greenville sponsors Greenville's favorite tradition, the Greenville Poinsettia Christmas Parade. For more than 20 years, the parade has signaled the start of the Christmas season in Greenville. Each year the parade attracts thousands of visitors downtown to view the holiday floats and activities.

The parade is traditionally held in early December. The 2015 event will be on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015. The parade begins promptly at 6 pm and continues to about 7:30 pm.
