Holiday Parade of Lights

Untitled design (16)

The Greater CWC Chamber & Visitor Programs presents


The parade 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


Pro tips: Arrive by 3:00 pm to find a parking spot, grab a burger or tacos at a local restaurant, and get coffee. Lots of options on and around the 12th Street area. Santa will be watching and will make an appearance! Thank you to our sponsor, Dominion Energy, support from the City of West Columbia, and funding assistance provided by City of Cayce hospitality tax funds.

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!

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. 


Special thank you to our Event Sponsors:
