Jacksonville, N.C. (WITN) – ’Tis the season for holiday parades. The first one to kick off the celebrations in Eastern Carolina is the Jacksonville 12 Days of Christmas Holiday Parade.
Thousands of people are expected to line the parade route down Western Boulevard.
The parade is the Saturday, Nov. 19th, and begins at Coastal Carolina Community College and ends at the Brynn Marr Shopping Center. Visitors can start lining the streets for the parade at 8 a.m. and the parade kicks off at 10 a.m.
You still have time to buy your Grandstand tickets here. The tickets are $8 and include a preferred parking pass, two VIP passes to the indoor refreshment area, and two complimentary reserved seats in the “performance area” on the parade route. You can add additional seats for $2.
WITN will air the parade live on WITN 7.2 and stream it on its website witn.com.
Our own Dave Jordan and Courtney Bunting will be hosting our live coverage of the parade and several of our on-air personalities appeared in it, as well.
