26th Annual Holiday Lighted Parade

Light up Historic Downtown Washington in the 26th Annual Lighted Holiday Parade on SATURDAY November 27th! Our parade is an open invitation to get out and share in the holiday spirit! To encourage you to use your imagination and be creative we will award first, second and third place prizes to the most festive parade entries. Please arrive at 5:30 pm for parade entry registration and judging at the corner of W. Washington Street and B Avenue.

Main Street Washington asks that you follow the following guidelines for 2020, for your safety & the safety of parade attendees due to COVID-19.

  • Please do not throw candy or handouts. Distribution is allowed, but must be handed to parade watchers.
  • DO NOT use a representation of either Santa or Mrs. Claus in your parade The use of elves or other holiday characters is acceptable. This will help to avoid duplication and confusion of young spectators as the final entry of the parade is designated for Santa Claus.
  • All entries/floats MUST BE Lighted in some way.

Would you like to enter a float into the Parade? Pre-register at bit.ly/LightedParade
