It’s that time again – time to prepare for the most wonderful season of the year! Gaffney’s annual Christmas parade AND Christmas on Limestone will take place on Friday, December 7th, 2018. We would love to have you participate in our events again this year.

Our theme for this year is “Silver Bells: Christmastime in the City”. Keep in mind this is a nighttime parade and lights are an important part of entries. We are asking all entries to be illuminated so make sure to use your imagination and creativeness. Applications are now being accepted. All completed applications must be received by November 30th. They are available at the Gaffney Visitors Center & Art Gallery, 210 West Frederick Street and in the links below.

Christmas on Limestone is a wonderful opportunity for you to participate and increase community awareness about your company/organization or if you have a group(s) that would like to showcase their talent. We would love to give you the opportunity to do so. If you are interested in participating as a vendor or performing, please contact the Gaffney Visitors Center & Art Gallery at (864)487-6244 or We will need you to provide your company or organization name, how many participants will be in your group, type of performance (singing, band, drama, etc.) or what you would like to provide, and how long you plan to be set up/ how long your performance will be.
