Parade Info

The Mooresville Christmas Parade travels south down Main Street, beginning at Statesville Avenue and ending just past Wilson Avenue near Merino Mill. The parade can be viewed from any point in between. Bring your chairs and blankets!  A crowd of 5,000-7,000 is expected so definitely head over early to beat the crowds.

Approximately 1.5 miles of Main Street will be closed to traffic, in sections, beginning at noon. Alternate routes through Downtown Mooresville include Broad Street & Church Street. Parking is available along both alternate routes, and in any of the public lots which are accessible from Broad & Church Streets.

Main Street will not be crossable inside the parade route. It is recommended that if you need to head west (Mitchell Community College side) after the parade is over, to park along Broad Street; if you need to head east, (Liberty Park side) park along Church Street. Or, hang out and visit all the awesome shops you will find in Downtown Mooresville!

There is no rain date for the parade, due to the street closing parameters set by NCDOT.

The Mooresville Christmas Parade will also be broadcast live on WHIP 1350 AM radio and a tape delayed broadcast will be available on TDS Channel 4.
