The annual Chelsea Christmas Parade is held on the third Saturday in December. This is a well-anticipated family event in our community that is enjoyed by all who attend. The parade officially begins at Chelsea Middle School and ends at Winn Dixie. Amateur floats are encouraged and a limited number of professional floats can also be purchased. Please do not have anyone dress up as Santa on your float. The only Santa allowed in the parade is the "official" Santa at the end of the parade! For safety concerns, motorcycles and ATV’s may not be entered in the parade. Additionally, parade placement will not be available until arrival at the staging area. In order to reduce traffic congestion in the line-up area, all groups must meet at an alternate location and come to the parade line-up as a single group. Also, in the event of inclement weather, please refer to the website for parade updates.
