The 33rd annual Clinton Guild Christmas Parade will be held Friday, December 6th, starting at 7PM. (PLEASE NOTE: THE PARADE IS ALWAYS HELD ON THE FIRST FRIDAY IN DECEMBER).

The parade takes place in the center of Clinton. Floats will line up on New Street and Center Street east to CenturyLink. Viewing is allowed anywhere along the Parade Route.

At 5:30PM Center Street will be closed to all non-parade traffic. However, Center Street residents may enter from the east end until 6:30PM. No traffic of any kind will be allowed to enter from the west end of Center Street after 5:30PM due to traffic congestion and pedestrian safety concerns.

At 6:30PM, Lower Center, Main, East Main, New, George’s Place, Halstead and Leigh Street (north of the traffic light) will be closed to traffic. Center Street will be open for parade traffic only. Streets will be open to thru traffic by 8:30PM.
