Columbia's Gervais Street will be packed with visitors as dozens of floats, marching bands and live performances march downtown for the 57th Annual Carolina Carillon Holiday Parade.




The parade will begin at 9:45 a.m. at Gervais and Bull Streets. Marchers will head west on Gervais, passing the State House and continuing into the Vista to Park Street.




High school drill teams, clowns, animals, and the most important part of the parade, Santa Claus, will all be on-hand to entertain the crowd.
