In the early 1990s, there was a chance that the Pinellas Park Christmas Parade would be no more. A tradition for decades, the parade as we know it today was one of the highlights of the year in the City of Pinellas Park. In September of 1994, Celebrate Pinellas Park, Inc. was founded and incorporated to insure that the parade would continue for years to come.
That was over 20 years ago and the parade continues to grow each and every year. In fact, it’s one of the few remaining hometown parades in the Tampa Bay area and is one of the largest Christmas parades in Central Florida. The Christmas Parade Committee meets on the second Tuesday of the month in August, September, October, and November in preparation for the event.
