Santa’s Parade & Tree Lighting Ceremony

This listing is provided by Visit McMinnville

Start the holiday off right with the McMinnville Downtown Association’s annual Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting Festival in downtown McMinnville!

The event begins with an old-fashioned starlight parade under 3rd Street’s twinkle-lit trees. The parade kicks off at 4:30 p.m. and the annual tree lighting follows immediately afterward.

Come early to take advantage of holiday sales and shop local for family and friends on your list.

Rumor has it, Santa pays a visit every year, but only if you’re on the nice list.

TREE LIGHTING

After the parade has come to a halt, gather in front of McMinnville Downtown Assocation’s Cozine House for caroling, hot chocolate and the annual tree lighting ceremony.
