Lawrence, Kan. – The Lawrence Old Fashioned Christmas Parade will ride into its 28th year with this year’s parade, scheduled for Saturday, December 5, 2020. The Lawrence Christmas Parade is one of the most unique parades in the nation. Authentic horse-drawn carriages parading down Massachusetts Street is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season. While it was previously stated that the 2019 parade would be the last, the Board of Directors is pleased to announce the tradition will continue into 2020.
“The parade has always maintained a very enthusiastic following as a local favorite activity around the holidays,” said Marty Kennedy, President, Lawrence Old Fashioned Christmas Parade. “The board was able to enlist new and key individuals who will become the future leaders and producers of the parade.”
The parade will once again be down Massachusetts Street and will start at 11 a.m. on Saturday, December 5, 2020.
