Santa Parade & Tree Lighting 2022

Auburn's Lighted Santa Parade & Tree Lighting event returns! 
From Auburn High School to City Hall, lighted entries will fill Main Street with holiday joy! 

This years' theme: Toyland! 

Decorate or dress as your favorite toy!

Beginning at 4:30 PM the parade will feature lighted vehicles, floats, cars, and walking entries. All community, families, non-profits, and businesses are welcome to participate.

All entries wishing to participate in the parade must register in advance by Wednesday, November 30, 2022. 

All entries must have a lighted element.

Join us for live music before and after the parade at City Hall. Then watch as the community brings out their lighted holiday parade entries! We'll wrap up the event with the annual tree lighting at City hall plus a visit from Santa. 

Flip the switchSanta is looking for a special helper to light the tree in front of City Hall.
