Since this is the 50th Annual GACC Christmas Parade, we wanted to do something special. Combining Bree's theme, "50 Years of Joy", with Carter's theme, "Golden Christmas Memories", was the perfect idea! Both winners received $25 in Chamber Bucks, and will ride in the parade with Santa!

Christmas celebration

2020 Will be the 50th Annual GACC Christmas Parade and Lighting Ceremony! We look forward to seeing you all there! We want to really light up the night and celebrate! 

​Will 2020 be the record breaking parade?  Stay tuned.....

There is no place like Christmas in Garnett. Join us on the Downtown Square on the last Thursday of November for our Christmas Celebration. Help us countdown the lighting of the square and enjoy the highly anticipated Christmas Parade! Remember to stop by the Fire Station before and after the parade for their annual Chili & Soup Supper! Get your picture taken with Santa at the Fire Station, after the parade.

Does your family, organization, church or business want to participate in the parade? We welcome anyone into our parade for FREE! You do not have to have a float, walkers and car riders are welcome!
