For many years, the Town of Marion has kicked off the holiday season the weekend before Thanksgiving. After listening to an abundance of requests to changing the parade, Marion Downtown and the Town of Marion have decided to revamp our wonderful weekend, in hopes of capturing more holiday spirit for our event!
This year, the Kaleidoscope Christmas Parade will be held Friday night, December 1st at 6:30pm.
If you are interested in participating in the parade, click here for the application. Applications are due by Friday, November 24th.

This is also the perfect opportunity to revamp our very successful Christmas Market! We have partnered with the Wayne C. Henderson School of Appalachian Arts, and will host the annual Christmas Market Friday, December 1st - Sunday, December 3rd. Stretching from the Farmers Market Pavilion through Iron Street Mall, to the Henderson School, we will have nearly 75 vendors set up downtown throughout the weekend. It's the perfect opportunity to shop local for the holidays!
