Santa rides high on the town of Mt. Pleasant Fire engine

Light the lights. Ready. Set. March.

This year is the 25th edition of the Mount Pleasant South Carolina Christmas Light Parade, also called the holiday parade. On December 13th at 5:30 on West Coleman Boulevard, the parade begins at Live Oak Drive and will proceed along Coleman Boulevard to Patriots Point where it ends. This is the only local parade that takes place at night. All floats are festooned with strings of glowing lights.

Local leaders such as Rob Fowler Chief Meteorologist at WCBD News 2 are often grand marshals for the parade. The parade concludes with Santa riding high on the town fire engine.

What an honor to be the Grand Marshal for the Mount Pleasant Christmas Light Parade Tonight! Thanks Mayor Will Haynie…

Given 2020 is the year of the Coronavirus pandemic, there was some thought of canceling it. However, Town Council decided to go ahead with it as reported by ABC News4.

Community groups and businesses participate


Brightly decorated floats, bands, community groups and more enter and take part. The best spots along Coleman will quickly be reserved by groups who want to enjoy the color and pageantry of this seasonal spectacle.
