2018 Christmas Carriage Parade

Saturday, December 8, 2018 at Noon

Downtown Parker

The Parker Christmas Carriage Parade is a valued tradition held annually in downtown Parker in celebration of the holiday season. The Town of Parker and the Colorado Driving Society present this exciting event on the second Saturday of December each year and the parade is free to attend.

Come and experience that holiday feeling in the air and enjoy this all-equestrian parade made up of dozens of horse-drawn carriages, wagons, surreys and stagecoaches from across Colorado, all dressed up for the occasion.

Event-goers also enjoy a holiday farmer's market, a petting zoo and pony rides, ice sculpting, games with Santa's elves and visiting time and pictures with Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Santa's reindeer are also on hand for a visit on this fun day!
