Broadway Holiday Parade & Tree Lighting

December 1, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC-5

He’s making his list and checking twice, he’s going to find out who is naughty or nice…Santa Claus is coming to Uptown!

Uptown Columbus, Business Improvement District, Columbus State University Servant Leaders and Uptown Merchants host the 10th Annual Broadway Holiday Festival on Friday, December 1, 2017 from 6:30 PM until 8:30 PM on the 1100 block of Broadway.

Christmas lovers rejoice as Santa is escorted in by his entourage, including special guest appearances from Santa, the Coca-Cola Polar Bear, and Mayor Teresa Tomlinson. Sing along to traditional Christmas carols at the lighting of the giant Christmas tree and play in the SNOW! There will be hot chocolate, candy canes and lots of fun for the entire family. Participants are encouraged to wear their favorite holiday attire and to bring their camera to partake in the many photo opportunities!

For the third year, Columbus State University’s Servant Leaders have partnered with Uptown Columbus on the Uptown Tree Trail, a trail of ornately decorated trees in the median of Broadway to shine all holiday season!

Bring a toy or $2 donation and play in Santa’s Castle of Fort Benning Bouncy House. A non-profit organization that runs solely on volunteers, the Santa’s Castle organization provides toys for children of Fort Benning Soldiers, who because of financial difficulties would otherwise not have toys during the holidays. @Santa’s Castle has been serving the Fort Benning and Columbus area since 1986.

Please join us as we come together this holiday season by giving to those less fortunate.

For more information, please visit or call 706.596.0111.
