Plans are underway to bring back the Christmas Parade back to Atlantic City.

Six -foot tall candy canes will be featured on every light post on Atlantic Avenue and a 35-foot-tall Christmas tree with 3,000 lights will light-up the South Inlet. Of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be the parade’s star attraction.

It’s been over three years since our casino city has had a parade to highlight the holiday season. The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority will spend over $595,000 on holiday decorations. Every tree at Center City Park, located at North Carolina and Atlantic Avenues, will also be lit with white lights.

The Atlantic City Holiday Parade will take place on Saturday, December 1st, at noon; it will start south on Atlantic Avenue beginning at Maine and Atlantic Avenues and end at Michigan and Baltic Avenues at Tanger Outlets The Walk.
