Day of the Parade Logistics
For Volunteers and Participants in the Dominion Energy Christmas Parade, we offer two ways to get to the Parade:
1. Volunteers planning to walk in the parade: *NEW FOR 2021* If you plan to walk in the parade, we recommend that you park your car at the end of the parade route at the John Marshall Courthouse at 808 E Clay St. A shuttle bus will bring you to the beginning of the parade. The shuttle bus starts at 7 a.m. and ends at 10 a.m. You will walk the parade and finish the parade arriving at your car.
2. Parade Participants being dropped off from a car: *NEW FOR 2021* The main participant drop-off is now located on the corner of Leigh Street & DMV Drive (no hang tag required). You can access the drop-off point by turning on Leigh Street from Arthur Ashe Blvd. We recommend that you use this spot if you have young children or individuals needing a ride at the end of the parade. We do not run a shuttle service at the end of the parade. You are responsible for picking up your parade participant at the end of the parade.
Parade spectator parking is on a first-come, first-serve basis and is available from normal city parking.
