FALLBROOK – Everyone will be "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" in the Friendly Village this year with the 2022 theme for the annual Fallbrook Christmas Parade chosen by the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce. Participants are encouraged to incorporate this theme in their window decorating downtown and on Christmas Parade floats.
The annual Christmas Parade will be held Saturday, Dec. 3 at 5 p.m. on Main Avenue in Fallbrook and will recognize the vast contributions of Jim and Jean Dooley, the co-Grand Marshalls. They are longtime residents of Fallbrook and have served tirelessly with many local nonprofits, all for the betterment of the community.
The parade route begins at Ammunition Road and ends at Ivy Street near the historic Mission Theater. This year marks the 41st anniversary of this cherished nighttime event.
Planning for this community tradition is already underway, and entry forms have started arriving at the chamber office. A limit of 100 entries will be accepted, with the deadline for entry being Wednesday, Nov. 16.
The parade is a wonderful way to kick off Christmas in the Village. The parade is preceded by the downtown Village Artisan Faire two weeks prior on Saturday, Nov. 26, and the Community Christmas Tree Lighting event at the Fallbrook Community Center, Friday, Dec. 2.
