For over 30 years, the Downtown Beloit Association has organized the Grand Lighted Holiday Parade.

The Grand Lighted Holiday Parade offers an impressive schedule of events and attracts thousands of local community members and visitors alike. Live music, free hot chocolate, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and decorative floats are just a few of the entertainment highlights enjoyed by the gathering.

The event will begin with live music at the First National Bank Plaza (corner of State St. and Grand Ave.) at 5:00 pm. Santa will arrive at 6:00 pm and begin the tree lighting which will be followed by the parade at 6:15 pm. Visits and photos with Santa will take place at Walnut Creek Awards (400 E. Grand Ave., Suite 101) at 7:00 pm.

Following the parade, look to ABC Supply Stadium for a holiday fireworks display!

“The Holiday Parade gets bigger and better every year,” said Shauna El-Amin, Executive Director of the Downtown Beloit Association. “It’s a fantastic, fun event to kick off the holiday season, spend time with family, and make new acquaintances!”
