The Manteo Christmas Parade is a time-honored tradition that attracts both participants and spectators from all across the Outer Banks, and which is sure to entice anyone to get into the holiday spirit.
The Manteo Christmas Parade is held in the heart of Manteo on Roanoke Island, and the parade route stretches along the downtown waterfront which makes it easy to find a spot to settle in and enjoy the show. Every year, the Christmas Parade attracts local school bands, association floats, vintage cars, horses, and more, who all come donned in their best holiday and coastal themed attire. The grand finale features an appearance by Santa Claus himself, who will later pose for pictures with kids after the parade is over at the centrally located boathouse.
The event is free for all spectators, and parking is available throughout this small town for visitors who want to find a picture perfect vantage point to watch the action. Always a celebration, the Manteo Christmas Parade is a great way to dive into the holiday spirit of the Outer Banks.
