Downtown Knoxville Christmas ParadePresented by WIVK
If you ask a Knoxvillian, it’s not really Christmas until Santa strolls down Gay Street.
The First Friday of December is the WIVK Christmas Parade! This annual parade heads right down Gay St. starting at 7PM in an array of lights and colors and Christmas music. We suggest coupling the evening with a hot chocolate a la Cruze Farm or a holiday cocktail from Tern Club.
Downtown can get pretty crowded for the parade so come early for easy parking and good seats!
