Downtown Smithfield Christmas Parade
Saturday, December 14, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.
A wonderful old-fashioned parade that sums up the heart of Smithfield.
This year's theme is:
"Hamtown Holiday Harmony"
This year's Grand Marshall is
Smithfield High School Band Director Aaron Hill.
There will be a new parade route and lineup/drop off route for this year's parade! The parade ends at the corner of James and Grace Streets. We do not recommend that spectators line up along Grace Street near Cofer Auto or Gimme Shelter as the new route will no longer go past this area.
