Pontiac Light Up Parade & Tree Lighting

November 26, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Pontiac Light Up Parade
An annual tradition and the favorite of many, the Light Up Parade is always held the Friday evening after Thanksgiving. The parade ends with Santa arriving in Pontiac and taking up his seasonal residence at the Santa House. Children are invited after the parade to visit him for photos and to give him their list. Additional times and dates to visit Santa will be posted on the entrance to the house.
Along with this year’s light up parade, the City of Pontiac has decided to make an even bigger event by adding the Downtown Tree Lighting to the front end of the parade festivities! Come down to Block 59 at 5:45pm and witness the lighting of the great downtown tree, as well as the lighting of the light sculptures that make our downtown so wonderfully festive. Then, after the lighting of the tree, stick around for an incredible parade of lights, festivity, and holiday cheer!
