Let’s see those floats dazzle in the return of the Festival of Lights Parade in downtown Brighton this December! The City of Brighton is accepting entries for its 26th Annual Festival of Lights Parade in downtown Brighton. Entry categories include equine/livestock, floats, motorized vehicles, musical acts, and bicycles.

In years past, the parade featured more than 75 fully-lit entries and beautifully highlighted the “Hometown Holiday Tradition” theme. This year’s parade returns to this tradition after the pandemic forced the City to pivot to a Santa Claus drive through Brighton last year.

“We are thrilled to bring back this beloved tradition for Brighton this holiday season,” said Gary Montoya, Events and Downtown Initiative Manager.

Set to start at 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 11, the nighttime parade is an event that all ages get to enjoy. The Festival of Lights features local groups, organizations, businesses, and families who will share the holiday spirit with the community. The parade starts traveling south on North Main Street and ends at City Hall. This event is sponsored by the City of Brighton and is free to the public to attend. More details to come when they become available.
