Cowpens Area Merchants Christmas Parade
The Cowpens Area Merchants Christmas Parade is a great way to RING in the season. The parade showcases many entries from Cowpens and the surrounding area and ends with a special appearance from the Big Guy himself. The parade is typically held the first Saturday of December in downtown Cowpens. The Cowpens Merchants will open following the parade to allow you to purchase that unique gift for a friend or family.
The parade route for 2019 will begin on Highway 110 and end on US Hwy 29 South. Questions may be directed to staff at Cowpens Town Hall, 864-463-3201, ext. 2.
