BELOIT — Now in its 25th year, the Grand Lighted Holiday Parade, hosted by Downtown Beloit Association, continues to bring delight to families, children and kids at heart.

The Grand Lighted Holiday Parade attracts thousands of local community members and visitors alike. Live music, free hot chocolate, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus and decorative floats are just a few of the entertainment highlights.

The event will be held on Friday, Nov. 24, and begin with live music at the First National Bank Plaza (corner of State Street and Grand Avenue) at 5 p.m. Santa will arrive at 6 p.m. and begin the tree lighting, which will be followed by the parade at 6:15 p.m. Visits and photos with Santa will take place at 7 p.m. at the Turtle Creek Bookstore, 444 E. Grand Ave.

“The holiday parade gets bigger and better every year,” said Shauna El-Amin, executive director of the Downtown Beloit Association. “It’s a fantastic, fun event to kick off the holiday season, spend time with family and make new acquaintances.”

Cash prizes will be awarded for the best floats.
