War Memorial Walking Trail Park Holiday Parade

Valor Hall Conference & Event Center is proud to host again this year “The Walking Trail Park Holiday Parade” sponsored in part by Oak Grove Tourism. The Parade will be held at the War Memorial Walking Trail, 101 Walter Garrett Lane, Oak Grove, KY on Saturday, December 15, 2018 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Parade will start promptly at 5:30 pm.

The parade route will span approximately half the walking trail. We invite patrons to stay longer after the parade ends and visit with Santa and enjoy some refreshments. Enjoy the beautiful walking trail and park that has been transformed into an exciting holiday celebration. A can’t-miss, exciting and unique evening event: a holiday parade, complete with decorated miniature-sized floats in a park on a walking trail, with Santa Clause featured once again in the parade lineup.

All Oak Grove, Fort Campbell, and surrounding communities are encouraged and welcomed to come out and enjoy this free event. Oak Grove Businesses are invited to participate in the parade with their own small vehicles and floats. Come out and not only represent your business, but also represent the unity of our community for this holiday season.

For more information and registration details, please contact Oak Grove Tourism at 270-439-5675. Due to the size and timing of the event, we are only able to accommodate 30 floats/vehicles participating in the parade. These spots will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Registration is free, and the deadline for registering your float has been extended to Friday, December 7, 2018.
