It's a whole new Christmas Parade in Evansville!

Posted: Updated:

You know the holiday season is upon us when the Christmas Parade marches through town!

It's happening this Sunday, November 24th, and this year there are some big changes. 

One of those changes is the route.

The parade will start at the Civic Center, go up Ninth, then Main Street and end up Garvin Park.

Once at the park, you'll get a sneak peak at Ritzy's Fantasy of Lights. A couple of the displays will be lit.  

After the parade wraps up, there will be a lot going on at Garvin Park.

From 4:00 to 6:00 PM they will have hot chocolate and cookies, food, a band playing live music, people will be dressed up in Charles Dickens' character costumes.

It will all wrap up with a fireworks show at 5:30 PM. 

An organizer tells us this year's parade is going to be double the size of last year.

More than 1,500 people are participating.

All the Garvin Park activities will happen after the parade.

However, before the parade starts, there will be a Santa's Workshop at the corner of Columbia and Main.

That will take place from noon to 2:00 PM. There will be plenty of activities for kids, including a petting zoo.

One more change-- this year, the parade will start a 2:30 PM.
