We are thrilled to see the return of the Christmas in Meridian Winter Lights Parade! The parade will float through old town Meridian to usher in the start of the holiday season. Santa will join us and bring his magic to light the city Christmas Tree that will shine throughout this festive season in Generations Plaza.
Come early to watch "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas' projected next to the mainstage at Idaho & Main streets. Grab dinner or a hot cocoa in the food court. Then enjoy the impromptu performances along the parade route by the Treasure Valley Children's Theater and the Encore Carolers. Don't forget to download the downtown decorating contest map and vote for your favorite business!
This year we will honor Juli Bokenkamp as our Grand Marshal. Read more about her and her 10 years of service to the Community Garden. Thanks to the many sponsors who make the event possible including Sparklight, Idaho Central Credit Union and All American Insurance.
But, wait! There is more! We are once again offering Zoom with Santa and the Winterland: in the Bag.
