Downtown Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting
November 9 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for our annual Downtown Racine Holiday Parade and Tree-lighting Ceremony on Saturday, November 9th.
The parade will begin at 5:30 pm starting at the West side of the State Street bridge, it will continue down Main Street to 6th Street, and travel West on 6th street and end at City Hall. The Parade will end at approximately 6:45 pm. The Tree-Lighting Ceremony on Monument Square will follow the parade at 6:50 pm, where the Mayor and Santa will light the tree.
There will be holiday singers and entertainment before and after the parade. Racine Brewing Company will be selling their holiday-themed brews on Monument Square following the parade, and the Downtown Racine Corporation will be selling cookies and hot cocoa. We will be hosting a Warm Accessories Drive to provide essential winter items like scarves, gloves, mittens and hats for area charities. Items can be dropped off at Monument Square anytime from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. As the weather gets colder, it is crucial that we do our part as a community to help the less fortunate. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!
