25th Annual Boykin Christmas Parade

Sunday, December 16, 2018 - 1:00pm until 4:00pm

This is the world’s most unique (wackiest) Christmas parade. It draws crowds of thousands of spectators each year to Historic Boykin, SC, with a population of only 25-ish (and doesn’t’ include dogs, horses, hogs, mules, chicks, etc.). With as many as 70 “floats” (e.g. tractors, manure spreaders, horses, pontoons, carriages, wagon, Jalopies, old farm equipment and other toting apparatus) and walking, marching and swirling creatures, you’ll need a nutcracker to make sense of it all. The day includes music, food vendors, town restaurants, Gospel sing-along at Swift Creek Church, and plenty of fun. The Queens will be floating by, too – the Fatback Queen, the Collards Queen and the Grits Queen–AND of course Santa Claus. For more details about this event, please visit the website here.

Location Details:

73 Boykin Mill Rd.
Rembert, SC 29128

Take a step back in time with a visit to the Boykin Mill Pond community where grain is ground at the restored mill or watch as brooms are hand-made on 100 year-old original equipment at the Broom Place. Home of the Battle of Boykin’s Mill, this location has been named one of the top 10 Carolinas’ Civil War sites by Clint Johnson in his book, “Touring the Carolinas’ Civil War Sites”. Nearby is Swift Creek Baptist Church where generations of worshippers lifted their voices in prayer and Boykin Mill Store. Groups welcome and tours available.
