Little Friends Parade of Lights! 2017!

Saturday, December 2, 2017 – 7pm Parade Start!

The Little Friends Parade of Lights will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2017! Mark your calendars & plan to attend this popular annual holiday parade and tradition brought to you by Little Friends in partnership with the Downtown Naperville Alliance. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand to celebrate the Season! Bundle up and enjoy an evening of festivities, brightly lit floats and musical entertainment!


The Parade will step off  from Jackson Avenue, at Mill Street, heading east to Main Street, ending at Main Street and Van Buren Avenue. The parade will travel thru the heart of downtown under the beautiful twinkling lights. Parade viewing will be sparkling anywhere along the parade route! (The parade main stage will be at Jackson and Webster).


City Deck, Central Parking Deck, Van Buren or the new Water Street parking decks will offer the best parking choices, along with parking lots. Street parking on parade streets will be removed starting at 5pm.


Immediately following the parade Santa and Mrs. Claus will visit with kids inside the Santa House at Jackson Avenue and Webster Street on the Riverwalk. 

Make a day of it and make your plans now to shop and dine before (reservations are suggested) and visit for further details – and for parade entry applications too!
