GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

As Thanksgiving and Christmas are approaching, so are the holiday festivals and parades. To get people into the holiday spirit, many areas of Eastern North Carolina will be holding their holiday parades.

In fact, there are at least three happening this Saturday. These will include floats, local personalities, musical performances and even Santa.

WNCT has put together the most comprehensive list of holiday parades in Eastern North Carolina. If we’ve missed one, just shoot an email to Jason O. Boyd at jboyd@wnct.com and we’ll be glad to add it to the more than 50 parades featured below.
