Hometowne Christmas Celebration
Saturday, December 2, 2017 1:00-3:00 p.m.

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.

Parade Applications: We are sold out. See you on Victorian in a few weeks!

If you are in the parade and looking for your line up, check back here after 11/27/2018 for a list.
