Visit Pittsburg this weekend!
This weekend is going to be action packed
and fun for the entire family.
Throughout the day you can visit local businesses and receive great specials as we celebrate Shop Small Saturday throughout town. More details are below.
This year’s Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade will be held at 2:00 p.m. in downtown Pittsburg. This year’s theme is “Home for the Holidays, An Old Fashioned Christmas.” Join us as we welcome in the holiday season with colorful floats, cars, and of course a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. If you would like to participate in the parade, please contact the Chamber office no later than noon on Wednesday, November 21 at 903-856-3442. Entries are still welcome!
Following the parade, we invite you to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. and Mickey and Minnie Mouse from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. at Pilgrim Plaza. In addition to local merchants participating in Shop Small Saturday, there will also be a unique Christmas market set up on Marshall Street from 2:00 – 8:00 p.m., featuring artisans and crafters, gourmet foods and more. Children young and old alike will enjoy the giant snow hills. For only $1, you can jump on an inner tube and slide down a slope of real snow! The day will wind to an end as families snuggle up with blankets and hot chocolate and enjoy the fantastic animated Christmas movie, “The Star” at 6:00 p.m. at Pilgrim Plaza.
Home for the Holidays is brought to you by the City of Pittsburg.
