The Night Lights Christmas Parade, Tree Lighting and Festivities is on Friday December 6th! The Rotary Club is hosting a chili cookoff and Sun Theatre will be showing Shrek the Halls. Come early to head to the library with the kiddos to make a gingerbread house!
Starting around 5pm that night, we will be roasting marshmallows around a fire pit in Bridge Street Plaza. Several area churches will be entertaining us with Christmas Carols. Join us for some toasty fun and a front row seat as Mayor Thom Sowle flips the switch to turn the 2300 lights on our gorgeous tree this year!
If you want your business to walk or ride in the parade, be sure and sign up! We have more than 70 groups scheduled to participate. Our Grand Marshall this year is Retired Grand Ledge High School Principal Jill Mangrum! Click here to sign up for the parade!
Here is our parade route for this year!
The Parade starts at the Grand Ledge Fire Department and heads south on Bridge Street.
It will end at the Sun Theatre where Santa will climb down the firetruck, hand out candy canes before the movie starts.
If you want to stay warm throughout the evening, come roast a marshmallow in Bridge Street Plaza or sample chili at Ledges Sweat Shop hosted by the Grand Ledge Rotary Club.
We will also be enjoying holiday carols in the plaza throughout the evening.
