The City of Brighton Special Events office would like to invite you to take part in our annual Festival of Lights Parade, which will be held on Saturday, December 10th, 2016. This event, which is held on the same day as our downtown Winter Festival, was created 20 years ago as a way to unite our community in celebration of the holiday season. We hope you will join us!
The theme of our annual holiday parade is "A Hometown Holiday Tradition." The parade is a night-time electric light parade which starts at 5 p.m. We encourage you to use your creativity in incorporating this theme into your entry, with lights (of course!), music, and whatever else captures your imagination!
We will be limiting the number of parade entries to 75 entries-maximum!! We will be recording entries as we receive them, and entries will be on a first come, first serve basis. We strongly encourage you to send in your complete set of entry paperwork (including driver and insurance information, if required) as soon as possible, so you don't miss your opportunity to participate. The last day that we can receive your paperwork is Friday, Nov. 18.
Please be aware that our parade will change this year. We will end the parade on 19th and Bridge St. This will make the parade approximately 6 blocks longer than the old route.
If you have any questions regarding the application, event schedule, rules, etc., please call Susie at the City of Brighton Events, Volunteers and Downtown Initiative Office at 303-655-2218. We look forward to working with your group to make this year's parade the best ever!
