2014 Festival of Lights Parade

Friday, November 28, 2014 at 7PM

What a fabulous parade! Although the air was a bit chilly, thousands of people bundled up to line the streets and watch the parade. Businesses, organizations, and individuals went "over the top" with lights and festive floats!

Five Beautiful trophies were awarded:

NEW FOR 2014 -- In order to create a wider and safer passage for the parade vehicles, there will be NO parking for the entire parade route, including: North Caroline Street, Crystal Lake Avenue, Grant Street, Woodstock Street and Williams Street.  Vehicles should be off these streets after 5PM, and can be parked in public/commuter parking lots.

Spectators must be up on the curbs -- plan your viewing options accordingly.
