SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1 | 10:00 AM
Due to the threat of severe weather conditions on Saturday, The Robins Regional Chamber in partnership with the Warner Robins Police Department has decided to cancel the 61st Annual Warner Robins Christmas Parade.
Chamber Board Chairman Gary Garrard said, “We regret to be in a position where we even have to think about canceling this time-honored community tradition. However, the safety of all parade participants, as well as parade viewers, is our main priority.” Mayor Toms added, “I’d like to thank the Chamber for their leadership with this event. We have had a long-standing partnership with the Parade, and this is the first time I can remember the weather forecast being bad enough for this call to be made. That said, we have all been monitoring the weather and I believe this is the best decision for our community based on the information we have at this moment.”
Pre-Parade Performance | 9:45 AM @ the corner of Watson & Davis
The Robins Regional Chamber’s 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. Each year thousands of community members attend this much-anticipated holiday event on the first Saturday each December where businesses, civic groups, educational organizations and recreational entities unite in an effort to make the season jolly! In addition to the thousands of spectators attending in person, radio listeners will be able to listen live to the parade broadcast on local stations and television viewers will have the opportunity to watch the broadcast on 13WMAZ, 13WMAZ.com, and WSST. This year’s Christmas Parade is sponsored by Robins Financial Credit Union. The Parade will begin at Commercial Circle on South Davis Drive at 10:00 a.m. and end at the intersection of Houston Road and Watson Boulevard.
2018 marks the 75th anniversary of the City of Warner Robins – the town that World War II built. This year’s Christmas Parade will serve as the culminating event of our community’s year-long celebration of this milestone anniversary. Our goal is to highlight all of the unique attributes that make the Robins Region so special.
Christmas Parade Registration is OPEN! Final Registration Deadline is NOON, NOVEMBER 1, 2018.
