Celebrate Christmas in downtown Opelika with the Snow Much Fun Christmas Extravaganza. Opelika’s Official Kick-Off Event to the Christmas Season will be at Courthouse Square on December 5 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. This is a free event for all!

This year parade kicks off at 4:30 p.m. and it is a reverse parade. A reverse walking parade means that the parade entries will be stationary while attendees walk through the parade route. This allows the parade entries to maintain a proper distance within their space but also allows organizations who are not yet allowed to participate in large events to set up and leave their spaces decorated for all to appreciate. Children will enjoy playing in the falling snow at Courthouse Square. 

The event schedule is as follows: 

4:30 p.m. 

  • Christmas Parade Ribbon Cutting: At Breezway (8th Street)

4:30-5:30 p.m. 

  • Walking Parade Route
  • Socially Distanced Santa
  • Snowfall and Christmas Music 

5:30 p.m.

  • Christmas Tree Lighting
