Annual Christmas Parade in Winter Haven and Auburndale

We are really looking forward to the return of the Havendale Christmas Parade this year, as nothing lifts the spirits of people more than the Holiday Season, and the Christmas Parade is one sure way for everyone in the community to share in the joy together, and to start getting that gingerbread feeling 🙂

The route this year is planned to start at the Spring Haven Community in Winter Haven and head west to the Publix in Auburndale.

The parade will run from 7 pm to 9 pm.

Participants More than welcome!

The Havendale Christmas Parade is a great way to show off your business, school, or community group! You get to help us bring cheer and high spirits to our residents and neighbors as we ring in the Christmas season! Plus, there will be awards announced for several participants who go above and beyond for their community. If you would like to participate in the parade, please print and return the Registration Form to Auburndale Parks & Recreation or the Greater Auburndale Chamber of Commerce. Applications must be filled out and accompanied by payment and proof of insurance. The deadline is Thursday, November 9.
