Since its debut in 1972, Demopolis, Alabama's Christmas on the River has grown into one of the Southeast's leading attractions. People travel from coast to coast to see the floats that really float. Each year, events have been added until Christmas on the River has developed into a week long festival. The festival takes place from Sunday through Saturday, the first week of December.
This week will begin with the lighting of the love trees. We will devote one evening to a performance by the Alabama Boy Choir, the candlelight tours of our antebellum homes, and the famous championship BBQ cook-off. The week will end on Saturday with an arts and crafts show, a children's day parade, and our traditional nighttime nautical parade and fireworks extravaganza. Last year's attraction brought approximately 40,000 into Demopolis. We hope that you will put Christmas on the River on your list of "must do's" for this year!
Alabama is a country music and southern rock band from Fort Payne, Alabama, United States. The band was founded in 1969 by Randy Owen (lead vocals, Rhythm Guitar) and his cousin Teddy Gentry.
In Alabama, you can dance the night away to the best music in the South. Stop in to a buzzing bar for a drink or take time out watching the ocean waves.
Alabama has outdoor fun for the whole family. Get active on your next USA holiday with tons of outdoor pursuits, or relax on a picture postcard beach.
