Mark your calendar for the 2021 City of Paducah Christmas Parade. The traditional parade returns to Broadway in downtown Paducah on Saturday, December 4 at 5 p.m. This year's theme is It’s a SUPER Christmas! Participants will have the opportunity to celebrate their favorite superheroes, hometown or make-believe. Social distancing is encouraged as you view the parade.
The parade units will begin lining up at 3 p.m. in the marshaling area on Broadway between 13th and 17th Streets and nearby. The parade route begins at 14th and Broadway and will proceed down Broadway to 2nd Street where it will turn left on 2nd and continue to Monroe Street where it will disband at the Farmers' Market parking lot.
The Parks & Recreation Department held a reverse parade also called an inverted parade. The floats were stationary and attendees drove by to enjoy them. The “Christmas in the Trees” Float event at Noble Park was December 5 from 5:30 until 9:30 p.m. Attendees entered the park at the H.C. Mathis Drive entrance, continued along the road observing the floats, and exited at Cairo Road. This event was limited to 42 floats with each float having no more than 40 feet of space.
