The 11th Annual Christmas Golf Cart Parade is an amazing sight of festive elaborately decorated golf carts making their way through historic downtown to spread holiday cheer. The parade loops around West Plant, entering east bound from Park Avenue and looping westbound on Woodland Street. Spectators should stake their favorite viewing spot along West Plant Street and bring a chair for comfort. 

Following the Parade, the golf cart entries will park throughout downtown for bystanders to get a closer look at the holiday-themed masterpieces.
