Join us for the 2019 Parade of Lights on Saturday, December 7 as we kickoff the holiday season with a day of free family activities that brings the community together for free and low cost children’s activities, holiday carolers and performers, hot cocoa and cookies, all culminating with the annual Parade of Lights and annual Lighting of the Christmas Tree at Circle Square!
The Parade of Lights is a full day filled with fun the entire family can get behind. Be sure to keep your calendars clear for Saturday, December 7 and put you and yours in the holiday spirit. The day includes:
- Family Friendly Activities throughout Downtown all day
- NEW THIS YEAR: Arrival of Santa at the new Missoula Mercantile Residence Inn by Marriott at 1pm, followed by photos with Santa!
- Parade down Higgins Ave. starting at 6pm
- Downtown Holiday Tree Lighting (Red XXXXs N. Higgins) after the parade.
- Much More!
Our theme this year is “Lights Around the World” – we welcome and encourage all cultures and religions to celebrate the holiday season in Downtown Missoula!
