Holiday Light Parade

The theme for this year’s Holiday Light Parade is Winder Wonderland. The parade will step off at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3 and will stage at Lance Park, head down Main Street and conclude at Central Park, next to the Chamber Caboose, for the tree lightning ceremony.

Floats in the parade will be lit festive with holiday illumination. No candy is allowed to be thrown from floats due to safety concerns. Those walking along side of floats should have reflective gear of some sort.
