CHOA Holiday Parade December 4, 2021
Updated: Nov 15, 2021
Join us for a NEW holiday tradition!
This year, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is reimagining a new holiday tradition to kick off the season. The annual Children’s Holiday Parade will be replaced by a full day of fun for the entire family at Colony’s Square’s Season on the Square. The Lighting at Colony Square celebration held Saturday, December 4, 2021.
Highlights of the parade, like bands and dance groups, will still play a role in the celebration with a 20-minute Street Extravaganza performance on Peachtree Street and the Main Stage at Colony Square.
There are several events and sponsorships that will benefit Children’s, including Breakfast with Santa and proceeds from the Colony Square ice-skating rink ticket sales.
In place of a Parade Grand Marshall, a Children’s patient will now have the honor of lighting the Christmas Tree at Colony Square to mark the official beginning of the holiday season on the evening of December 4.
We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday, December 4, 2021.
