Electric Christmas Parade
Saturday, November 25th
Main Street in Downtown St. Charles | 5:30pm
Come down to downtown St. Charles and see the beautifully decorated floats in the Electric Christmas Parade, sponsored by St. Charles Chrysler Dodge Jeep and Ram. Starting at 5:30pm, the Electric Christmas parade starts at 6th Street and travels down Main Street to conclude at 4th Avenue. There will also be live bands, and a special guest, Santa Claus! The three categories for this year's parade are: business, non-profit, and children.
To make this parade even more magical, there will be 500 lighted elements handed out before the parade. Make sure you turn yours on during the parade, so that you may be as illuminated as the floats!
