We will host our 43rd Annual Holiday Parade on Friday, Dec. 7, 2018 at 6 p.m.

This hometown parade is a true holiday tradition and thousands line the street each year to kick off the holiday season in style!

The parade starts at 6 p.m., but many come early to Rotary Plaza to sing carols from 5-6 p.m. and anxiously await Santa’s arrival via fire truck.

Once Santa arrives, one lucky local family is selected each year to help the Mayor flip the switch on Star Pine, lighting the giant tree in all its glory.

Additional handicap parking is available on the 1100 block of Tenth Street and the 1000 block of C Avenue. See the map for street closures and parade route information.

For more information on the Holiday Parade, contact the Chamber office at 619-435-9260.
