Get ready for a joy-filled weekend at Christmas on the River! The festivities are packed with delightful tunes, lively performances, and that infectious holiday spirit. A variety of dance and musical acts will be featured on Rousakis Riverfront Plaza on Friday evening from 5-8pm and Saturday from 11am – 5pm. Take time to stroll and shop along the waterfront for some unique gifts available from our River Street merchants!

The star of the show, our 32nd Annual Lighted Christmas Parade, is set for Saturday, December 14, 2024. Imagine bands, over 50 vibrant floats, merry dancing groups, and more, all decked out in twinkling lights, creating a magical spectacle through downtown. The parade begins at Plant Riverside District on the west end of River Street at 5:30pm and continues to the east end, then winds its way up to Broughton Street and through City Market.

Come celebrate the holidays with friends and family on Savannah’s Waterfront!  Admission is free and open to the public.
