Denver’s Famous Christmas Parade is Coming Back This December
By Shawn Patrick on November 2, 2023
Christmas in Denver is never complete without the huge Christmas lights parade downtown, and good news… It’ll be back this year!
The 9NEWS Parade of Lights is back in downtown Denver for 49th year on Saturday, Dec. 2nd at 6 p.m.
Produced by the Downtown Denver Partnership and presented by American Furniture Warehouse, the Colorado holiday tradition dates back to 1975 and has grown into the largest and most-watched parade in the Rocky Mountain region.
The parade will begin in front of the spectacularly-lit Denver City and County Building before snaking through downtown Denver on a two-mile parade route.
The holiday parade, which is free to attend, will have more than 40 illuminated floats, helium-filled character balloons, marching bands, equestrian units and cultural entries and a special appearance from Santa Claus.
A limited number of grandstand tickets can be found on the Parade of Lights website.
