Mark your calendar–the annual Festival of Lights Parade in downtown Howell is fast approaching!
The event is sponsored by the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce, and takes place on the Friday after Thanksgiving–which falls this year on November 29th. This nighttime parade is a beautiful way to kick off the Christmas season. Each float in the parade must contain a minimum of 5,000 holiday lights. The event has attracted crowds up to 30,000 lining the parade route down Grand River Ave. Entertainment activities begin at 4 p.m. and include cookie decorating and visits with Santa and live reindeer. The Fantasy 5k Run begins at 6 p.m. followed by the parade at 7 p.m. For more information or to fill out an application to be part of the parade, visit www.howell.org.
