Thousands will fill Downtown and kick off the 2017 holiday season the weekend before Thanksgiving, starting with the City of Concord's 20th annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, November 17. Sponsored by Carolinas HealthCare System and Uwharrie Bank, the annual event will once again feature family entertainment, Santa, and the grand finale of fireworks at 8:30 p.m. The fun continues Saturday at the 89th annual ACN Concord Christmas Parade. Announced by the historic Gamewell diaphone at Fire Station 1, the parade will begin at Church Street N and Lake Concord Road at 2:30 p.m. on November 18, and continues over two miles along Church Street, Buffalo Avenue, and Union Street to Corban Avenue.
