South Boston Christmas Parade returns Dec. 4 with superhero theme / October 18, 2021
After the disruptions of the past year, Destination Downtown South Boston is excited to announce the return of the town’s annual Christmas parade, which is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 4 at 5 p.m.

The theme this year is “A Superheroes Christmas.” Destination Downtown South Boston Executive Director Tamyra Vest said, “Participants are encouraged to decorate their floats in the theme of their favorite superhero! Note, this can be any fictional character or someone you deem a real-life superhero such as a doctor, nurse or any other ‘superhero’ that stands out to you! You could have great fun building a float with the multitude of great fictional superhero characters, or you could focus on the first responders of the area — the men and women who are forced to miss a holiday with their families to help save the lives of others.

“We can’t wait for the town to be overrun by Supermen, Spidermen, Batmen, Captain Americas, and Wonder Women, but also supermoms, firefighters, and more hometown superheroes than Santa could shake a stick at,” stated Vest.

“Let’s have fun creating a ‘marvel-ous’ Christmas Parade!”

Anyone with questions about the parade or how to participate can call 434-575-4208 or download a parade application at

Early bird deadline for applications is Friday, Nov. 19.
