2015 Festival of Lights Parade
Friday, November 27, 2015 at 7PM
Update 11/6/2015: PARADE IS FULL. Sorry....no more applications will be accepted.
On the plus side...we are very excited to see some of the new and interesting entries. We guarantee the parade will surely be a "sight to see!"
Please note: 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.
