The City of Greenville's Poinsettia Christmas Parade will once again usher in the holiday season with an illuminating parade that will line the streets of downtown Greenville. The parade, a long standing city tradition, will feature over 75 musical marching units, elaborately decorated floats and, of course, Santa Claus. This year’s parade will take place on Main Street from Augusta Street to North Street on December 1 at 6pm.
