Sparks Hometowne Christmas Parade

Join us in celebrating The Twelve Nevada Days of Christmas! The Sparks Hometowne Christmas will be putting a “Battle Born” twist on the classic Christmas carol. We’re intertwining our love for Nevada with our contagious Christmas spirit!

The Hometowne Christmas Parade is a Northern Nevada tradition as deep rooted as the spirit of the season itself. The parade will feature marching bands playing the holiday tunes we all know and love, Christmas costumes, adorable animals, and festive floats all representing The Twelve Nevada Days of Christmas. The Sparks Hometowne Christmas Parade kicks off the City of Sparks Toy Drive, and features a Community faire with information on how you can give back to your community this holiday season.

Each parade entrant is judged for theme, originality, personality and presentation. The judging categories are: Best Over-All, Business, Vehicles, Animals, Community, Costumed Group, Marching Bands, and Floats.

On the Twelfth day of Christmas, the Silver State gave to me:
Twelve Battle Born flags flying
Eleven Fremont Cannons blasting
Ten feet of snow a-falling
Nine neon lights a-lighting
Eight trains a-railing
Seven lakes a-swimming
Six zephyrs blowing
Five golden nuggets
Four calling blue birds
Three picon punches
Two tumbleweeds
And a chukar in a pinyon pine tree
