Christmas on the River


In the spirit of St. Nicholas, the popular Christmas on the River festival annually honors someone for outstanding service and volunteerism in Demopolis. The person is recognized for their efforts to help children in the community. The St. Nick is garbed in ka miter and cape, resembling a bishop’s vestments after the Bishop of Myra, known for his love of children. The Demopolis St. Nicholas rides on the St. Nick float in the Children’s Day Parade.
