MARIETTA - Marietta Parks, Recreation & Facilities is proud to announce the newest addition to the Christmas Tree Lighting Event on Thursday, December 1st, "Marietta's Ugly Sweater Parade." Don your ugliest of Holiday sweaters (family appropriate) and join Santa in his parade to the Square! 

The Marietta Ugly Sweater Holiday Parade is part of the Christmas Tree Lighting Festival, which is held annually. This traditional, old fashioned day of family fun is centered on the Christmas Tree Lighting celebration, and includes choir performances, meet and greets with Santa Claus, and the annual lighting of the tree. The .4-mile parade will step off at 4:45PM at Marietta City Hall Upper Parking Deck, travel down Lawrence St, around the Square and ends at Glover Park via East Park Square.

Any individual, organization, group, business or other entity that desires to participate in the parade must submit an application. All forms must be completed in their entirety and received by The Tree Lighting Parade Committee prior to the deadline. An applicant is not accepted into the parade until written confirmation is received from The Parade Committee. The Parade Committee will consist of the Parade Coordinator, Recreation Leader, and Recreation Supervisor. Approval or denial will be mailed to the applicant no more than 14 days from receipt of the application. 

*The City of Marietta reserves the right to cancel any events at any time due to an Executive Order issued by Governor Brian Kemp due to COVID-19 or any other outside factors.
