The Robins Regional Christmas Parade is one of Georgia’s largest Christmas holiday events and provides a great opportunity for area organizations and businesses to gain valuable exposure and show off their community spirit. While the parade is attended by thousands of community members, many others, including business owners, educational organizations and recreational entities participate with floats, marching units and other entries in efforts to kick-off the holiday season!
The Chamber would like to thank the many participants, volunteers, community partners, staff and family members who played a big part in making the 58th Annual Robins Regional Christmas Parade a huge success!
