Come See Santa Safely

Bahama Christmas Parade

The Bahama Ruritans facilitate the Bahama Christmas Parade every year. Unfortunately due to the onset of Covid-19 pandemic and after much thought and consideration. The following decision has been made to protect the residents of Bahama and Northern Durham.

This year, 2020, the parade is tentatively canceled due to the restrictions put in place by Governor Roy Cooper. Should those restrictions be lifted we will do everything in our power, keeping safety in mind, to put on the best parade yet.

Thank you for your interest. Please check this page for updates.

A special thank you to all who have participated in the past.

Thank you to all of you that came to see Santa on Saturday. He enjoyed seeing each and every one of you and looks forward to seeing you on Christmas.
