Nashville Christmas Parade volunteers needed

The Nashville Christmas Parade is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2. The parade benefits Monroe Carell Jr Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, and organizers are working to line up an array of floats, balloons, bands and performers. 

This year’s parade will have a two-hour live show the day of, and then will be nationally syndicated throughout the month of December and January. 

In order to pull off a parade of this magnitude, volunteers are needed for a variety of positions and areas, including:

  • Balloon Handler
  • Assembly Area
  • Dispersal Area
  • VIP Event Greeter/Usher
  • Float Escort
  • Act Marshal
  • Banner Carrier
  • Mass Operations
  • Seating/Users

Volunteers may work individually or in groups, and time shifts are from 7 a.m. – noon, though most won’t last that long.  

If you are interested, respond and let organizers know your name/group name and how many people you represent.  Once we have your commitment, we would need your group organizer to have everyone fill out the volunteer application and release waiver. To participate in the parade, all commitments and forms must be completed by Oct. 31
