The Annual Green Cove Springs Christmas Parade is organized by the Green Cove Springs Business League and is now held on the evening of Christmas on Walnut Street Festival. Floats glowing with Christmas lights make their way down U.S. 17 to City Hall, where the parade kicks off the lighting of the City tree and Parade of Trees in Spring Park. Don't miss this 50-plus-year Green Cove Springs' Christmas tradition!
