The event is a great way to kick off the holiday season. It takes place the Friday after Thanksgiving every year and is fun for all ages. Singing and dancing fill the air all night. The smells of food and hot cider or hot chocolate are around every corner as vendors sell their goodies. Santa is available for pictures and the kids can make cookies with Mrs. Claus. The details will become more clear as to the places and times for these events as the day gets closer. Please check back often. Businesses are eager to welcome customers into their stores to warm up.
As the night winds down uptown we then get ready for a the beautiful Parade of Lights. Entrants each year light up and head down Central Avenue. This is a sight to be seen with all of the great floats. Santa rides on the Chamber float at the end of the parade he heads back to the North Pole to get ready for Christmas.
You can enter a float in the parade by clicking on “Parade of Lights” and submitting the form to the Chamber or by calling 406-433-1916. Please indicate if you will be playing music or passing out candy.
