The Hardee County Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday, December 3rd, 2016, at 6:00pm. There is a change in the route this year due to the ongoing construction on both East and West Orange St. The parade will be leaving the old Hardee Jr High School complex on West Main St and will travel to Hwy 17 Southbound (S 6th Ave). The parade will then turn onto Hwy 17 Southbound and travel 2 blocks to W Bay St. The parade will then turn westbound on W Bay St and will continue to S Florida Ave. The parade will then turn northbound on S Florida Ave and return to the old Hardee Jr High School complex. Please be patient as we work around the construction to ensure a safe and enjoyable evening for all participants.
