Drive Thru Christmas In The Park Parade

November 30, 2020 | 6:00 pm | Lincoln Park

*Due to COVID-19, we do not want to put our community at any additional risk, so rather than canceling the parade altogether, we are reversing the parade process. We ask everyone to do their par in keeping this a safe community event for all to enjoy.*

Help the City of Pittsburg Parks & Recreation Department kick off the holiday season at the annual Christmas Parade – Drive Thru style! Parade route will be through Lincoln Park and will be determined by volume of entries. More information on parade route and entry line up will be available on the Pittsburg Parks & Recreation’s Facebook page

Parade Entries:

We encourage all community members to join in on the annual Christmas Parade. Categories include floats, marching bands/dance groups, vehicles and animal/horse. All entries will remain stationary during the event. Spectators will be following a designated “drive thru” route.


1. All entries must be registered in order to participate.
2. The one and only Santa in the parade will be on the fire truck at the end of the parade. No other Santas allowed.
3. Entries must be decorated with a Christmas/holiday theme. To be seen and give your drive by audience a good show you will need to have decorative lights. Electric will not be available.
4. All entries with electrical mechanisms and/or flammable materials must be treated with flame retardant mixtures.
5. Inspection of all entries will be completed by the Pittsburg Fire Department to ensure compliance and safety.
6. Please do NOT hand out candy, giveaways or throw anything from your entry. We do not want spectators to exit their vehicles. This will also help with the flow of traffic.
7. Please sty on or near your entry; we do not want pedestrians in the road along the parade route.
8. Restroom access will be available for parade entry participants.
9. Those that cannot remain socially distanced and at least 6′ apart must wear a mask.
