Sponsor/General Entrant Registration

Spartanburg Jaycees Christmas Parade

"A Festival of Lights"
December 13th, 6:30 PM

We as the Spartanburg Jaycees are so very thankful for all of the individuals and businesses that invest their time and hard earned money into this magical production each year! We wouldn't be able to do it without you! We look forward to your involvement in this spectacular Spartanburg event! 

The Reason for the Season: The Spirit of Giving... 

All profits from our efforts during the parade go to a specially organized Christmas Shopping Spree for less fortunate children right here in the upstate, as well as towards Jaycee Camp Hope, a summer camp founded and funded by all South Carolina Jaycee Chapters, organized for special needs children and adults. We are always in need of volunteers to assist with both of these events and would love your help, if you are interested in volunteer opportunities with the  Spartanburg Jaycees email us at spartanburgjaycees@gmail.com.
