The city of Greensburg Holiday Parade is the start of a month long schedule of downtown activities and events celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  For many residents the parade is part of their family’s tradition.  Frank Lehman, Director of the City’s Recreation Department, noted “it is an enjoyable time for families and friends with the children enjoying the candy and fire trucks”. The city of Greensburg has scheduled the annual Holiday Parade for Saturday, November 20th at noon.   

Arrive early to get a good parking space as the crowd lining Main Street can exceed 9,000 people if the weather is nice. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the downtown shops and restaurants with many offering specials and samples.

The parade route starts at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art and proceeds south on Main Street towards City Hall. Traffic will be detoured around the parade onto Maple Avenue and College Avenue.

Come into downtown and participate in this Greensburg tradition. For information on how to register your organization to participate in the parade, contact the Greensburg Recreation Department office at 724-834-4880. This event is a great way to advertise and be seen by thousands.
