Parade of Lights

December 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Parade of Lights Downtown Bigfork

‘Tis the season for the Parade of Lights.   The theme for this year will be announced soon and is always in conjuntion with the Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theatre’s performance.

The Bigfork Holiday Parade of Lights is held in downtown Bigfork starting at Grand and Electric Avenues on the first Saturday of December. Bring the kids and family out to visit local businesses, then grab a hot drink and enjoy the show. The parade will wrap up with Santa’s arrival at the Bigfork Center for the Performing Arts at 6:30 pm.  He will be available for pictures until 8 pm.  Remember to bring your camera to take memorable photos in the Christmas Village.

The Parade of Lights is a small, community minded parade.  Please keep this in mind if you are planning to attend and/or participate.  We hope that attendees arrive early to shop, dine, and support Bigfork businesses.  There is no formal road closure for this event, so please use extreme caution whether you are a spectator or float driver.
