Little Friends Parade of Lights! 2019!

Friday, November 29, 2019 – 7pm Parade Start! SAVE THE DATE (this is the Night After Thanksgiving)!

The Little Friends Parade of Lights will take place on Friday, November 29, 2019! 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 Webster Street, to Van Buren, ending at Naper School. The parade’s main stage will be at Jefferson & Webster with great sparkling Parade viewing all along the parade route!


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. (FOLLOW POSTED PARKING SIGNS for parade parking removal. Taking a Tuk Tuk or Za Car is also a fun way to come to the parade).


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!
