Rotary Christmas Parade
3833 Bragg Blvd, Fayetteville, NC 28303
Thank you for a great 2022 Parade!
Thank you our 2022 Grand Marshall, Amy Navejas of the United Way of Cumberland County, Rotary District #7730 Govenor Nancy Carr, and Rotary International French Exchange student Leora DesGranges, for representing Rotary in our 2022 Christmas Parade. The parade received some extra publicity when Our State magazine featured the parade and E.E. Smith High School’s “Magnificent Marching Machine” in the magazine’s December 2022 edition. The Fayetteville parade was featured as one of 5 festive North Carolina Christmas parades. The E.E. Smith Band, who has competed nationally and won hundreds of awards, is always a crowd favorite for the Fayetteville parade.
