KI17 WinterFest 008 1The 2018 Dominion Energy Christmas Parade is celebrating its 35th anniversary with Snoopy, everyone’s favorite beagle, as its Grand Marshal! Snoopy appears courtesy of Kings Dominion, host of the new immersive holiday experience at WinterFest.

This year’s parade theme is “The Magic of Christmas.” The lineup will feature colorful floats and entertainers who will wow the crowds along Richmond’s Broad Street. Joining Snoopy and his friends will be whimsical characters from memorable holiday stories, as well as Legendary Santa himself.

This year, Snoopy will celebrate the holidays at Kings Dominion’s WinterFest, featuring 11 different themed winter wonderlands, multitudes of Christmas trees, millions of lights, ice skating, entertainment, food, crafts and hands-on activities and more than 30 festive characters roaming the midways. A nightly tree lighting ceremony and state-of-the-art light show (with snow!) will transform the park. WinterFest runs select nights Nov. 23 – Dec. 31.
