Festival of Lights

26th Annual Festival of Lights Parade, Winter Festival and Historic Downtown

Saturday, December 4 and December 11, 2021

Welcome to the 26th Annual Festival of Lights Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony!

On December 4th winter festival activities will be from 2 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. at Main Street Creatives Gallery (36 South Main St.). This will include the Teddy Bear and friends tree and Santa Comes to Town. The tree lighting will begin at 5 p.m., followed immediately by a performance by internationally-acclaimed acapella group FACE - they will be on stage on Main Street in front of Founders Plaza.

On December 11th the 26th Annual Festival of Lights Parade will start at 5 p.m. (sponsored by the City Of Brighton). All ages will enjoy this night-time light parade. Our parade features local groups, organizations, businesses and families who will share the holiday spirit with everyone. The parade includes more than 75 fully-lighted entries and beautifully highlights the theme of "A Hometown Holiday Tradition." The parade travels south on North Main Street, turns east on Bridge St. to 10th Avenue to Southern Ave., turns east to where it shall return to city hall. All events are free and open to the public. We hope you join us for our Hometown Holiday Tradition.
