The holiday season can't begin until Santa makes his way up Neil Street at the Parade of Lights, presented by Christie Clinic! This beloved community event features marching bands, lighted floats and the Jolly Fellow himself!

Held in the heart of Downtown Champaign on Small Business Saturday, the event features a full day of pre-parade activities including visits with Santa, a kids' scavenger hunt to local businesses, and live music and carolers. A tree lighting ceremony immediately follows the parade in One Main Plaza. Click here to view an album of last year's parade, attended by over 5,000 people!

The 19th Annual Parade of Lights will be held on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at 6pm. This year's theme is "Winter Wonderland." Please check back on this page for updates and follow our Facebook event for current information about the parade day schedule, parade route and parking information.
