Old Southeast Neighborhood Holiday Golf Cart ParadeSaturday, December 10, 2022 at 5:30 pm.

It’s back! By popular demand, OSNA is once again holding a Holiday Golf Cart Parade Extravaganza. We would like to invite you to watch - and if you are lucky enough to have a Golf Cart, take part - in our annual Holiday Golf Cart Parade. Join us for an after party at Lassing Park!

OSNA has also partnered with St. Pete Golf Carts for an exclusive discount if you wish to rent a golf cart to decorate and enter in the parade and decorating contest (more info below).

For safety and permit reasons we can't have bikes or walkers following the full parade route, however you can walk a little ways down your block with us, or meet us on Beach Drive.

Parade Route

Golf Cart Staging begins along Florida Ave by The Chattaway. The parade will set off at 5:30pm from The Chattaway. Our police escort will lead the way followed by Santa, then the decorated Golf Carts. The parade route map is below. We encourage OSE neighbors to gather on Beach to watch the parade and meet us at the end for a holiday gathering. 

OSNA Holiday Golf Cart Parade Route

Santa and his elves will be tossing gifts to the neighborhood kiddos - make sure to wave and shout to get his attention! 

Prizes

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will receive a prize, as well as FREE membership to OSNA for 2023!

There will also be a surprise prize for one lucky voter randomly chosen.

After Party 

We will end near 19th Ave S on Beach Drive at Lassing Park, where we will have light refreshments, an OSNA membership table, and photos with Santa! This year we are also hosting a drive for Toys for Tots - so please bring a gift to donate to children in need, or feel free to bring a dessert to share with your neighbors. 

Note: Please avoid parking along Beach Drive by 19th Ave.

Holiday Tradition

This holiday tradition promises to be even more exciting and build off OSE's previous two years of golf cart fun! Fun, quirky, decorated carts will spirit Santa’s wagon around the neighborhood spreading holiday cheer and children’s treats. 

This year we hope you can walk along for a block or two as we pass by your street. Santa’s helpers are still tinkering with the final festive details, but we guarantee fun for all!
