Starlight Parade

This listing is provided by The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce

The Holiday Season is coming and with that comes one of the most anticipated parades of the year! We invite you to celebrate the Christmas season at the 35th Annual Starlight Parade and Tree Lighting Celebration!

Enjoy floats decked with lights, Christmas music and holiday cheer in the air. Witness the delight in the children’s eyes as they watch Santa’s sleigh rolling down the streets of The Dalles. The holiday spirit then comes to life at the Annual Tree Lighting Celebration, located at The Dalles Chamber complete with hot chocolate, cookies and popcorn.

The parade begins at 6pm at West Sixth and Webber Streets, then rolls through downtown before ending in front of The Dalles Chamber of Commerce office. The Tree Lighting Celebration will take place following the parade.

Want to showcase your business’ Holiday spirit? Enter a float in this year’s parade. Applications are available online at or in the Chamber office at 404 West Second Street starting in the end of October.
