The Downtown Boone Development Associations mission in part is to promote the historic preservation, protection and use of Boone's traditional downtown area, including the area's commercial, civic, and religious enterprises and residences. To encourage property owners to maintain, improve, and beautify downtown properties.  We currently host 16 promotional events and activities annually, including First Friday Art Crawls, The Easter EGGstravaganza, Downtown Boone BOO!!, the annual Christmas and July 4th parades.


The annual Downtown Boone Christmas parade is Saturday, December 6, 2014 starting at 11 pm.  The parade travels down King St. right through the heart of Downtown Boone.  There be lots of fun, holiday cheer, and perhaps even Santa will join the parade!
