Tons to do for the whole family in Downtown Longview on Parade Day, December 2nd! Starting at 12pm and lasting until right before the big Parade at 5pm, there will be: Longview’s Gingerbread Haus Contest, Gift Bazaars, Pedicab Rides, Live music, and of course delicious treats from local restaurants.
Downtown, at Teague’s Interiors, the annual Gingerbread Haus contest will be on display from 12:30pm – 7pm, where you can see all the houses and sweet creations.
Then, at 5pm, The Parade will begin! Winding around Downtown, this cheery and flashy parade will finish at the Civic Circle in front of the Monticello Hotel, with the arrival of the famous big guy himself, Santa Claus and his lovely wife, Mrs. Claus.
Once the switch is flipped, and the entire Civic Circle is lit up by beautiful lights, little boys and girls of all ages can sit on Santa’s lap to tell him their special Christmas wish.
