Held the first Monday in December, one of the largest Christmas Parades in the entire River Valley takes place in Greenwood. Thousands of people turn-out for the evening. This is more than just a typical Christmas parade with a few floats and Santa Claus.
Prior to the parade, the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce hosts its traditional "Bean Feed" where we serve, free of charge, over 50 pounds of deliciously prepared ham and bean soup with homemade cornbread. The parade, brightly lit, travels down Main Street and has consisted of more than 80 entries. Santa is always on hand and ready to visit with children after the parade when he makes his infamous arrival on the Fire Truck!
