Over the past four years, the Nokesville Christmas Parade has become a tradition in the Nokesville community and by extension the Brentsville District.

The Fifth Annual Nokesville Christmas Parade should be no exception. It starts at 4 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 10, and will be followed by a live nativity play.

The Nokesville Christmas parade, sponsored by Friends Uniting Nokesville [FUN], the Nokesville Business Association [NBA] and the Nokesville Church of the Brethren, is the natural extension of community holiday tree lighting that has taken place since 2001.

The Nokesville Christmas Parade will traverse Fitzwater Drive. The parade begins at Brentsville District High School on Aden Road and ends at Nokes Street near the Nokesville Road/Route 28 intersection. Fitzwater Drive will be closed from 3:45 to 5 p.m during the parade.

The parade will feature classic cars, fire trucks, high school marching bands, animals, dancers from local studios and business-sponsored holiday themed floats. The parade ends with the appearance of Santa Claus riding on a Nokesville Company fire truck.

After the parade, the Nokesville Church of the Brethren will host a live nativity scene on their lawn and a candle-lit carol performance of “Silent Night.”

The church’s fellowship hall will also have a chili dinner available for $5 per person. Funds received from the dinner will be donated to BARN transitional housing in Bristow and students in need at The Nokesville School.

Free carriage rides will be available in the church’s parking lot after the nativity production.

The Grand Marshal of the parade this year is Steve Curry, an injured veteran, citizen of Nokesville and businessman. The Citizen of the Year is BJ Thomas .
