Lighted Christmas Parade – December 10, 2020
The Second Thursday of December is the annual Chamber of Commerce Lighted Christmas Parade to officially welcome the holiday season. And, most importantly, it heralds the arrival in Seymour of jolly ole St. Nick and Mrs. Claus high atop fire trucks provided by the Seymour Volunteer Fire Department.
Various businesses, clubs and organizations decorate themed and lighted floats and entries in the competition and move through downtown along Washington Street to delight the judges, locals and our many visitors.
At the conclusion of the Parade, Mr. & Mrs. Claus receive Christmas lists and wishes from hoards of children in the comfort of the Baylor County Free Library.
