Chester Christmas Parade

December 10, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This year, the Old Dominion Historical Fire Society (ODHFS) is once again honored to provide the “sleigh” for Santa’s ride in the parade. In addition to Santa’s sleigh, other apparatus are warmly invited to join the event. However, I would greatly appreciate it if you could inform me if you plan to attend. This will help us keep you updated on any last-minute changes or important information.

12 Noon – 1 PM.
At some point during this timeframe Chesterfield Police will be shutting down Route 10 between “downtown” Chester and US Route 1. Therefore if you are headed to the ODHFS pre-staging area from the West on Route 10, plan your route accordingly.

12 Noon – 1:15 PM’ish
ODHFS will be pre-staging area in the parking lot at Kohl’s, 2701 W. Hundred RD, Chester. The ATV group that parked in “our” area last year has been told to park in the Thomas Dale High School Parking lot this year.

1:15 PM’ish
ODHFS will move from the parking lot at Kohl’s onto westbound Route 10, with the last unit being Santa’s Chariot. Tommy, Santa’s number one helper, will be coordinating this.
2 PM Parade moves out.
