Bowling Green, Virginia’s Annual Christmas Parade 2022

Bowling Green, Virginia’s Annual Christmas Parade 2022

by Staff Writer

Bowling Green is a very small town in  Caroline County, Virginia. The county seat of Caroline County since 1803, Bowling Green is best known as the “cradle of American horse racing”, the home of the second oldest Virginia Masonic Lodge, and the current location of the oldest continuously inhabited residence in Virginia.

In 2020 the population was 1,180 but that didn’t prevent this parade from being well attended. Main street was packed with viewers eager to support their community and see the participants.

The parade began with members of a local church passing out complimentary hot chocolate, marshmallows and warm scarves for whomever needed them. They walked along Main Street singing Christmas carols and sharing the reason for the season, immediately creating a warm inviting environment for the parade tucked away in a rural corner of the state.

It was a chilly December’s day but along with hot apple cider from the local diner the holiday spirit kept everyone warm!
