30th Annual Lights On Celebration – Saturday and Sunday November 28 and 29 2020.
The Hollister Downtown Association would like to announce the annual parade will be held out at the Hollister Municipal Airport this year. We have created a Covid friendly solution to continue our tradition of bringing Santa to town to kick off the Holiday season. Santa will be flown in on Saturday November 28 to greet our residents at our Reverse Parade. This year we will hold a 2-night event to hopefully give everyone the opportunity to come out and say hello. This year’s Lights On Celebration parade theme is “Inside Santa’s Workshop.”
We will have exciting displays and lots of surprises provided by Ray Pulver of Upbeat Parade Productions. We welcome community groups, businesses, and performers to sign up to take part in this unique, safe, and family friendly free event. We will be encouraging the community to bring canned food or toys to donate which will be collected at the beginning of the parade.
In place of our traditional Downtown gathering, we will have parade floats, vehicles, dancers, and decorations stationary and the attendees will drive through the designated area in a loop around the airport. Families will be able to enjoy and experience safely form their personal vehicle and receive goodies at the end as they wave to Santa and Mrs. Claus.
We would still encourage everyone to Eat, Play and Shop our Downtown merchants before or after the event. As in previous years, we will have the Dec-A-Tree project on the Vets Plaza on display for your enjoyment. Park, walk, shop, eat and enjoy the beauty of our wonderful businesses decorated storefronts.
