Welcome the Christmas Season with the community traditions in our beautiful Downtown! On Friday, November 27, from 6-8pm, plan to enjoy the Christmas Night Lights Parade. The presenting sponsor, ISU Credit Union, is returning this year to help make the parade possible. This year will be a little different with community members invited to stay in their vehicles and drive thru the parade route. Parade entries and floats will be parked along the parade route for all to enjoy. And of course, Santa will be at the top of Fire Truck #1 at the end of the parade and Santa's elves will have bags of candy for all of the kids.
Registration this year for commercial entries is $45.00 plus processing costs. Registration for Non-Profit and Veterans Organizations is complimentary. We just ask that you please register so we can plan for your participation.
The parade route will be the same as in past years. All entries will receive a map indicating where to enter the parade route and where your entry will be located, approximately one week prior to the parade. The roads will close at 4pm and all entries may begin to get in place. Please plan to be parked with lights and music on by 5:50pm. All entries may have individuals on or in your float, flatbed, pickup, etc... we ask that all please plan to stay in or on your entry. There may be no candy throwing this year. There may also be no car to car distribution of information or any items.
If you have candy or literature about your business you would like to provide for the crowd, those items may be delivered to the Historic Downtown Pocatello office, 420 N. Main St., prior to November 20. We will take all of the candy and items and pre-bag for Santa's elves to handout at the end of the parade.
Changes this year are being implemented for the safety and health of our community. We encourage face coverings for all entry participants when social distancing is not possible.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we all work together to provide the best Christmas Season possible for our entire community!
