This year’s parade is scheduled for Saturday evening, December 5, 2015, following the lighting of Fort Bragg’s official Christmas tree and a visit from Santa Claus, which starts at 5:00 PM with Santa’s arrival. Caroling begins at 6:00 PM followed by the tree lighting and the parade at 7:00 PM. The parade will follow a route from west Pine Street’s judging area, to Franklin Street, to Oak Street and then on to Main Street to complete the circle back to Pine. Viewing is possible along the entire route, with prime seats staked out early on Main Street near the Guest House museum and the Christmas tree. Please remember this is a family-friendly event, and no alcohol is permitted.
