Christmas in Opelika
Christmas in Opelika is a truly special time of year. Our partners at the City of Opelika go all out to decorate our beautiful downtown, including the bridges, trees and light poles. It's a spectacular season that is sure to bring joy to your heart. Opelika's "Very Merry Christmas" encompasses events hosted by the City, Parks & Recreation, the Opelika Public Library & much more. We hope you'll visit us in December! At the Opelika Chamber, we do our part in helping make Opelika a Christmas destination by kicking off the Christmas season with the following events:
This is an annual community event held to kick off the Christmas season in Opelika. People enjoy a winter wonderland as artificial snow falls all throughout courthouse square ending with a magical tree lighting ceremony for everyone to enjoy!
Thousands of local citizens attend to celebrate every year, with visitors traveling from around the area. We kick off the Christmas season by bringing cheer to all those who attend!
Opelika’s annual Christmas Parade will take place right before Snopelika at 5:30pm! Thousands of local citizens attended last year's NIGHT PARADE to see over 90 parade entries and enjoy all of the festivities of the night! Different themed floats as well as local marching bands parade through the downtown streets as they lead everyone to Courthouse Square for the Snopelika snowfall!
This event allows chamber members an opportunity for recognition in the community through sponsorship opportunities as well as participating in the parade.
