Brought to you by the Downtown Business Alliance of Parker

Bringing Back one of our traditions

The downtown Christmas Parade is a long tradition of Parker. Our residents love gathering up in Downtown and enjoying a kickoff to Christmas with this parade.

Last year, we the Downtown Business Alliance of Parker made the decision to bring this tradition back to Parker after not having it for a few years prior. The huge success and overwhelming support we received after the Parade last year was amazing & we appreciate all of you! So, we have brought the Parade back again this year!

We hope you will join us in Celebrating this long standing fun Christmas Parade! We will have horses, carriages, floats, fire trucks, vehicles, marching bands & walkers. It will be a magical event & we are excited to share it with you all!
