PCB Christmas Parade
December 10 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Optimist 2022 Christmas Parade! DECEMBER 10th, 2022.
Assembly will begin at 2pm at Surfside Middle School, see below for Parade Route.
The parade is proposed for December 10th, 2022, starting at 5pm. There is no entrance fee required. Due to Covid concerns the Parade Route has been changed.
The parade will marshal/start at Surfside Middle School on Nautilus Road, go South on Nautilus, turn right onto Front Beach Road, turn right on Powell Adams Rd, and end in the Walmart parking lot and behind Target. Please drop off entrants early as roads will be closed when the Parade starts. Last year we had 80 entrants ranging from a group of 2 people walking to support their political candidate, to high school marching bands, to the Panama City Beach Fire Department fire trucks. Most entrants were medium sized (20 or less participants) and were self-contained either walking en-masse, riding their own vehicle(s) (Corvette club), a flatbed type truck (Church groups), or a tow behind trailer (Football team). The Beach Mosquito Control and the Panama City Beach Fire Department had the largest vehicles. Most entrants tossed candy to the crowds.
This year we have requested that all vehicles with more than three axles provide sufficient adult wheel walkers to ensure the safety of the on-lookers. NO CANDY OR ITEMS MAY BE THROWN FROM FLOATS OR VEHICLES. IT CAN ONLY BE HANDED OUT BY WALKERS!
