Welcome to www.celebratepinellaspark.com, home to the Pinellas Park Christmas Parade! The 50th Annual Pinellas Park Christmas Parade is scheduled for Saturday, December 9th, 2023 starting at 6:00PM. If you’re a potential participant, please be aware of some rule and procedural changes for this year’s event:
- Entry types: We have created a GOVERNMENT registration type that will be for government entities, currently elected officials, or public safety agencies.
- Registration fees: Registration fees are increasing to cover increased costs to the parade committee. Private/Non-Profit entries will start at $50.00 and Commercial entries will start at $100.00 in the month of September. Fees will increase in $25.00 increments each month through November. Government entries will be free of charge.
- Parade theme: By popular demand, parade themes are returning. In celebration of our 50th parade, we’re throwing it back to the 1970s! We strongly encourage all entries to participate in the parade theme, but it’s not mandatory.
- Participant disbursement: At the end of the parade, all participating vehicles will have only one option to exit the route – continue eastbound over the U.S. 19 overpass. Vehicles carrying passengers that would be unsafe to continue over the overpass will be pre-approved and permitted to unload on the on-ramp and proceed. No parade vehicles will be permitted in the Shoppes at Park Place.
