RONCEVERTE (WVDN) – The annual Ronceverte Christmas Parade is one of the most exciting times for the city and citizens.
This year, the city is gearing up for an evening of festivities to kick off the Christmas season in style with lights and cheer.
Christmas in Ronceverte is a special time, and the Christmas Parade is just the start of the season with businesses, organizations, and citizens joining together to make the holiday season something special for everyone. This year, the Ronceverte Ministerial Association is hosting a series of events leading up to the parade.
“The Christmas parade is something people in Ronceverte look forward to every year,” says Ronceverte Mayor Deena Pack. “I’m excited to see the city show up and ring in the holiday season with the annual parade! It’s just the start of the Christmas season in Ronceverte.”
Prior to the parade, attendees can get pictures with Santa and enjoy homemade chili at the Ronceverte Presbyterian Church from 5-7 p.m. Attendees will be treated to Christmas carols at 6 p.m. and a tree lighting ceremony leading up the parade.
The Ronceverte Christmas Parade, which is hosted by the Ronceverte Volunteer Fire Department, will take place at 7 p.m. and will go through the city spreading the wonderful Christmas joy everyone looks forward to every year.
Everyone is welcome to attend any of the Christmas Parade events on Dec. 5.
Participation is free, so come on down to The River City to join in on the festive fun. Ronceverte can’t wait to see all of the children, adults and pets lining the streets to celebrate the start of Christmas.
