The Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville is co-hosting the Graceville Christmas Festival again this year with the City of Graceville on Thursday, December 2. The spirit filled day will start with the Christmas parade beginning at 6:00 p.m. in downtown Graceville and end on Sanders Avenue in Heritage Village across from the BCF Archive building. The BCF Jazz Band will be featured in the Christmas parade as they play jazzed up versions of Christmas carols, traveling from downtown to Heritage Village where the rest of the festivities will occur. Immediately following the parade, BCF will host a tree lighting ceremony with traditional Christmas carols led by the BCF College Singers.
According to event coordinators, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be making an appearance as well as a winter wonderland full of snow, Christmas music, twinkling lights, a rock wall, giant inflatable slide, kiddie train, and some refreshments on hand for all ages.
Due to concerns over Covid-19, the event was only a drive-thru version last year but for those that remember the Graceville Christmas Festival of December 2019 at Heritage Village, this year promises to bring even more Christmas fun to kick off the month of December.
