City of Clarksville & Montgomery County Lighted Christmas Parade


5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

The annual Lighted Christmas Parade, jointly presented by the City of Clarksville and Recreation and Montgomery County, will be held on the first Saturday in December at 5:00 p.m.  

Local businesses, civic organizations and clubs, school groups, municipal agencies, non-profits, and church groups are invited to be a part of this tradition by preparing a float or driving a fun vehicle all decked out in lights and holiday cheer!  

Spectators can enjoy the parade for free anywhere along the route which begins at Austin Peay State University and goes through Historic Downtown Clarksville. For safety purposes, spectators are asked to please stay off the roadway during the parade.
