Rocky Mount Christmas Parade to team up with Toys for Tots

Following in the classic holiday tradition that is trimming the tree, hanging the stockings, and awaiting Santa to descend down the chimney, the 62nd annual Rocky Mount Christamas Parade returns on December 3, just down the street from your new home at Belmont Lake Preserve, bringing holiday joy and the yuletide spirit once again to downtown Rocky Mount.

This years’ Christmas Parade in Rocky Mount has a very special theme, as the city officials and members of the community will band together with the United States Marine Corps Reserve, who will be on hand to collect donated toys for less fortunate youngsters in the area to help ensure a special Christmas morning for the little ones who may not normally receive such gifts. The representatives from the Marine Corps will be located near City Hall, on the corner of Church and Nash Street before, during, and after the Christmas Parade in Rocky Mount to collect the “Toys for Tots.”

The 62nd annual Christmas Parade in Rocky Mount will commence at 3:00 p.m., ringing in the holiday season as the community and all its residents “get in the spirit of the season” as they march through downtown in grand fashion. In addition to the area schools, bands, dance groups, and other groups that are sure to impress with there individual floats that are encouraged to be decorated in accordance with this years’ worthy them of “Toys for Tots,” the little ones will also be thrilled to know that once again, Santa Claus himself, along with Ms. Claus will also be on hand as a part of the 2017 Christmas Parade in Rocky Mount.
