We are sad to announce that the City of Placerville has notified our Hangtown Christmas Parade committee that "the City is not planning or approving any road closures of Main Street, and so the parade will not be able to happen this year." The Hangtown Christmas Parade is a community event to raise funds and gather toys for Toys for Tots. This has been a particularly rough year for families and this year the need is even greater for donations. Please donate locally by going to placerville-ca.toysfortots.org.
We look forward to hosting the Hangtown Christmas Parade next year!

All year long, J Stirling and his band of brothers (and sisters) who make up the Hangtown Marshals bring our historic past to life at events and random walkabouts downtown. Our community is richer for the color and history that is brought to life by this group. Since 1988, the fearless leader of this band has been J Stirling. We honor J. with the title of Grand Marshal in gratitude for all that he has given to Placerville for over 31 years.
