Christmas time is finally here. A time for family, hot cocoa, giving gifts(and receiving, if you’re on the nice list), and, of course, Christmas parades! That’s right, nothing reminds me of the holidays more than waiting patiently by the street for Santa to ride by in a firetruck throwing candy to all the good boys and girls. 

Here’s a list of fun-filled, kid-friendly events through Birmingham to help you celebrate the season!
