Holiday parade and tree lighting to take place Nov. 30

The Winter Snow Fun Holiday Parade & 43rd annual Tree Lighting Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 30.

The parade will begin at 6 p.m. on Fair Avenue and will venture down North Third Street, ending at the Marquette Commons. The Marquette Commons is also the site of the tree lighting ceremony, which will take place promptly following the conclusion of the parade.

This downtown tradition transforms Third Street into an enchanted scene from the North Pole, featuring numerous festively decorated floats, vehicles and marching units. The United States Postal Service will be collecting letters to Santa along the parade route. Letters should include a return address. Following the parade, the fun will continue with the tree lighting ceremony and photos with Santa Claus at Marquette Commons.
