Danville Riverview Rotary Club prepares for the annual Christmas Parade

DANVILLE, Va. – The Danville Riverview Rotary Club is getting ready to throw its traditional Christmas Parade this year.

The Christmas Parade is scheduled to take place on December 4 and will get underway at 5 o’clock in the evening, regardless of the weather.

This year, they worked with Caesar’s Virginia to make sure that the North Carolina A&T marching band could take part in the parade.

The beginning of the parade will be on Broad Street in front of King Cropp Kitchen. It will keep going down Main Street, turn right onto Craighead Street, and end at the community market.

“It’s a night parade, so it’s different because you get to see the lights,” said Barry Richmond, member of the Danville Riverview Rotary Club. “You get to see the parade in another perspective. That’s why we’re so excited about that late afternoon start time. It will certainly end in the dark, but not too dark for you to come out and enjoy.”

The last day to register to participate in the parade is tomorrow at 4 o’clock in the evening.

There will be a late fee to enter the parade after the deadline, except for local businesses.

As a college student, making an extra buck now and then was very important. I started as a part-time reporter since I was 19 yo, and I couldn’t believe it might become a long-time career. I'm happy to be part of the Virginian Tribune's team.
