Floats, marching bands, dance groups, and more will march down Holly Springs Parkway towards the Historic Train Depot, where after the parade, Santa will be available for complimentary pictures. While you wait, pick up a take-home Christmas craft, and snack on cupcakes and hot chocolate. These events are free.
