The 2019 Parker Christmas Carriage Parade was held on Saturday, Dec. 14, 2019. It 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.
The holiday feeling was in the air as many enjoyed 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 enjoyed a holiday farmer's market, games in the park with one of Santa's elves and sponsor activity booths!
Thank you to our Sponsors and Volunteers!
