Holiday Parade of Lights

Holiday Parade of Lights Banner (1)


Saturday, December 10th, 2022

This year, the Greater CWC Chamber and Visitor Programs is partnering with Captain Telegram to host a Holiday Business Shuttle before the Holiday Parade of Lights! Shops, restaurants and businesses will be open to offer special holiday promotions, family-friendly activities, giveaways, classes and so much more. Shuttle stops will be throughout downtown Cayce-West Columbia beginning at the "North Pole" - The Greater CWC Chamber Office. We will travel through Triangle City, the River District, Parkland Plaza, Cayce Arts District, the Cayce Historical Museum, Steel Hands, and more.

We will have a shuttle map and stops listed as we get closer to Parade Day!

Holiday Parade of Lights Route

The Holiday Parade of Lights begins at City of Cayce’s City Hall at 1800 12th Street and goes down 12th Street to Highway 1 in West Columbia, SC. Don’t miss this annual holiday tradition and visitor destination event! Shop local and eat local before and after the concert. Many local stores will offer specials and to-go food the day of the parade. Arrive early to have lunch and shop! Share your photos of the parade using #cwcparade

Special thank you to our Event Sponsors:

Special thanks to City of Cayce and West Columbia and the Accommodations and Hospitality Tax Funding that makes community events like this possible. 


This is a great community event that would not be possible without the help of our sponsors and volunteers!

If you would like to volunteer for a two- or three-hour shift the day of the Holiday Parade of Lights, we would love to have you!
Please contact us at for more information.

Our Line-Up crew needs a group of volunteers to assist with parade line up and directing traffic. It is important that we have people greeting guests at drop off zones and collecting zip code information. We would also like to have a few people at the Chamber office assisting with judges, dignitaries and guests.

Volunteers will receive an event t-shirt, dinner and if representing an organization or business, a special shout out on social media. 

Pro tips: Spend the day in the CWC and catch a ride on the Parade Day Shuttle! Grab a burger or tacos at a local restaurant, and get coffee before the parade starts. Lots of options on and around the 12th Street area. Santa will be watching and will make an appearance! Stick around the CWC after the parade for live music at one of our great breweries, dinner or a night cap. Stay at one of our local hotels and rest up for a relaxing Sunday in the CWC. Brunch and a morning walk by the river and a bit of shopping is the best way to end a weekend in the CWC.
