It’s Time for the Annual Holiday Parade!
It's time for a holiday tradition in the heart of the Parks.
This Sunday, November 18th it is the 21st Annual Light Up The Parks Parade.
I knew it had been going on for quite some time, but congrats on 21 years! This is a great way for the community to get together and kick off the holiday season.
The parade will start at 4:45pm in the Schneider Electric parking lot on Clifford Ave. with the route then will turn north on Elm Ave., turn left onto Roosevelt Road, cross N. 2nd St., and will disassemble in the south side parking lot of the Machesney Towne Center.
Santa will also be there at the end of the parade!
The whole community is encouraged to participate in the parade because there will be an awards ceremony for the winning floats at the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony which is immediately after the parade in the Town Center Roundabout.
