Pikes Peak region’s most beloved holiday traditions, the Festival of Lights Parade, returns Saturday, December 3. The Parade is put on each year by a dedicated volunteer board of directors who supervise two contract employees to bring together an event that delights crowds of 40,000-50,000 on Tejon Street in Downtown Colorado Springs each holiday season!

Local companies and organizations, large and small, create holiday fantasies to share with children of ALL ages
