Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will lead the Holiday Lights Parade through downtown Naperville

The Rotary Club of Naperville, in partnership with the Downtown Naperville Alliance, will host the annual Holiday Lights Parade on Friday, November 25.

The parade will pass through the heart of downtown under the beautiful twinkling lights.

Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will be on hand to celebrate the season! Bundle up and enjoy an evening of festivities, brightly colored floats and musical entertainment.

Pre-parade entertainment will begin at 6:30 p.m. on the broadcast stage located at the corner of Webster and Jackson streets.

The parade will depart at 7 p.m. from the Centennial Beach parking lot and head east on Jackson Street. The route will then turn left onto Webster, north of Van Buren where it will pass the lookout post. The parade will go west on Van Buren to the end of the route at Naper School. There will also be a specially designated viewing area for people with disabilities.

Immediately following the parade, Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will visit the children inside the lower level of the Naperville Public Library at Jackson and Webster streets. Santa’s Workshop will be recreated inside the building, providing games and activities for children as they wait their turn to visit Santa and share their special requests for the holiday season. It will be open until 9 p.m.

Proceeds from the Parade of Lights fundraiser will go to area nonprofits that support diverse populations and the community in meaningful ways, including youth community and educational programs; food, housing and employment; and mental health awareness.
