The City of Denver will provide Denver residents with some grand entertainment on Saturday!  The 48th annual Parade of Lights will be held in downtown Denver with a 2-mile route for families to enjoy the lights and sounds of a Holiday parade.

 

 

 

 

 

Saturday night - 12/03Parade will begin at 6 pm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You won’t want to miss the sparkling lights, marching bands, ornate floats and delightful characters including Major Waddles the Penguin and Santa, as they take to the streets of Downtown.  Spectator viewing for the Parade is free all along the two-mile route or purchase grandstand tickets for seating in front of the City & County Building.   The Parade will last approximately one hour.

 

The weather is expected to be very mild, so not as important to bundle up the kiddos as in past years.   Stop into some of the restaurants and cafes along the route to enjoy some hot chocolate or adult beverages.

 

 

 

 

The parade route will begin in front of Civic Center Park and 14th Avenue and will continue along the 2-mile route with Santa bringing up the rear.

 

 

The 16th Street Mall free shuttle will not run during the one-hour parade.   Plan ahead if you plan to drive downtown and find a parking space.

 

 

The light rail will be a great option to get downtown, and exit at 18th & Stout for the best location.  The service will uninterrupted before and after the Parade.   During the Parade, service will not be available to Stout & California and between 14th & 18th.   It is advised to get there early, approximately one hour.   There is standing room along the route, or you can bring chairs.

 

 

 

There are Grandstand tickets available for purchase, however, the parade is free.   The Grandstand tickets are $40.00 

 

 

 

 

This is a great kick-off to the Holiday season.   Come and enjoy the festivities of the Parade of Lights, the Holiday decorations all over downtown Denver.     

 

 

 

While you are downtown, there are several options for Denver lofts, call me if you have always thought about having a loft downtown!

Looks like an awesome Christmas Event to attend.  We have something similar to this in our small town and in the Knoxville area.  Always enjoy looking at the Christmas Lights.  Hope you have a fabulous day!

Hi Joan,

After bringing Tristan to our St. Patricks Parade, he loved it.  This event will be fantastic for all the kids to enjoy.  It will get people in the spirit of the holidays!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® as a kid, and even many times with my daughter and when she moved away - have attended this event.   It is very festive, and the kick-off for the Holiday season.  Tristan would so enjoy it!

We used to do our parade of lights on the water however after two collisions with logs and about $14,000 worth of damage we decided to watch from that point on 🙂.

Hi Joan- this sounds like so much fun!!!  Larry and I used to go when we lived in Delray. It was a lot easier to get around and did not have to compete with so many people like here in Houston. I hope you have beautiful weather for it.
