Darlington Christmas on parade
The 2020 Darlington Christmas Parade included dozens of festive floats, merry motorcycles and Santa in a speedboat! Kids scurried for candy as paraders tossed treats into the streets until sundown. The Sunday afternoon holiday spirit spilled over to the Public Square where vendors and businesses welcomed guests. At nightfall, the annual Carol Lighting gathering culminated with the lighting of the towering tree on the Darlington County Courthouse grounds. Below are scenes from the festivities.
