Catch the Glow Parade & Celebration

COVID Edition - beginning November 27, 2020

Instead of a traditional mobile parade, the Catch the Glow Festival of Lights will be stationary and hosted on the grounds of the Town's Events Complex, at 1125 Rooftop Way. Spectators will be able to drive "through" the parade floats in the comfort, safety, and warmth of their own vehicles. This COVID-friendly format will be available for viewing for two weekends starting Friday, November 27, 2020.


Plans are evolving, but the Festival of Lights will continue to feature whimsical new float designs and floats built and provided by local nonprofit organizations. All floats and the Events Complex grounds will be brilliantly lit. Santa himself will greet everyone as they pass. As always, this event is free of charge.

New in 2020!
