Celebrate the magic of the holiday season at the 7th Annual ‘Winter Snow Fun’ Holiday Parade and 42nd Annual City of Marquette Tree Lighting. Bundle up with friends and family as illuminated floats, tinsel-strewn trucks and colorful carolers transform Third Street into a magical scene from the North Pole. After the parade, spectators are welcomed to the Marquette Commons where Santa Claus and friends will light up Downtown at the annual City of Marquette Tree Lighting. Festivities include a performance by the Marquette Senior High School Redmen Chorale, pony rides, hot chocolate and photos with Santa Claus. The Marquette Post Office staff lends a helping hand to Santa’s elves by collecting children’s letters to Santa along the Holiday Parade route.
The parade begins at the corner of North Third Street and Fair Avenue and ends at the Marquette Commons (112 South Third Street). After the parade, spectators are welcomed to the Marquette Commons where Santa Claus and friends will light up Downtown at the 42nd Annual City of Marquette Tree Lighting. Visits with Santa to follow.
