Nutzy & Nutasha bring "FUNN" to the Dominion Energy Christmas Parade!
39th Annual Christmas Parade will celebrate “A Very RVA Christmas!” 

RICHMOND, VA (Oct. 6, 2022) – No one embodies the spirit of RVA like Nutzy and Nutasha of the Flying Squirrels. They will serve as Grand Marshals for the 39th annual Dominion Energy Christmas Parade. The Christmas Parade will kick off in front of the Science Museum of Virginia at 10 a.m. on Saturday, December 3rd.

The Flying Squirrels mascots are following in the footsteps of their President and CEO Todd “Parney” Parnell who was Grand Marshal in 2011. “We love Richmond, and we have from year one! We also love participating in the Dominion Energy Christmas Parade!” said Parney. “We are deeply honored to be Grand Marshals for this year’s “A Very RVA Christmas” and look forward to creating cheer, joy and memories along the awesome parade route.”

Parade Director Beth Karrer said this RVA duo are the perfect pair for this year’s theme. “We wanted to honor the rich history of Christmas in RVA, including 39 years of the Dominion Energy Christmas Parade!” she said. 

One of RVA’s favorite Christmas traditions, Legendary Santa, will be in the parade! This year’s lineup will also feature colorful balloons, marching bands, dance troupes, and much much more! 

This season, the Flying Squirrels made it to the Eastern League playoffs for the first time since 2014! More information about the team including schedules, stats, and tickets can be found at
