The Boykin Christmas Parade is a Wild and Crazy Thing of Beauty, Don’t Miss It!

If you weren't there, you missed out. Here's what you missed!

South Carolina Holiday Tradition Continues with the 24th Annual Boykin Christmas Parade
2 pm – 5 pm / Sunday, December 17, 2017

Historic Boykin, SC – 84 Boykin Mill Rd.


With the day starting at  2:00, you can enjoy all the food vendors, music, and a Gospel sing-along.

Trolley transportation will be provided to Boykin from the overflow parking lot on Red Bank Road @ SC Hwy 261.


 Over 20,000 people are expected to descend upon the Kershaw County town of Boykin for its 24th annual Christmas parade.

According to the U.S. Census, Boykin has approximately 100 residents.

One thing is for sure, there is no shortage of holiday parades across the Midlands, including Columbia’s Carolina Carillon Holiday Parade, Lexington’s Christmas Parade, Cayce-West Columbia’s Holiday Parade of Lights and others. Here at Palmetto Weekend, we’ve covered quite a few of these parades ourselves. Let us be clear when we say this, NOTHING, compares to this whacky Christmas parade.

If you missed this year’s 23rd annual edition, give our video another watch.

Did you know the official South Carolina state dog is the Boykin Spaniel, which was originally bred right here in Boykin?

It all started with a trip home from church. Here the story from the original breeder’s granddaughter right here.
