Santa's Electric Light Parade

Band marching down Old Town Front Street

Friday, November 30, 2018 - 7:00pm



This is a RAIN OR SHINE EVENT.

 Bundle up, bring your holiday cheer and join us to watch the parade as it travels south through Old Town beginning at the intersection of Del Rio and Jefferson. There will be floats that twinkle, holiday music from school marching bands and much more as we celebrate the holiday season.
