Hometowne Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting

hometowne christmas34th Annual Hometowne Christmas Parade: The ART of Christmas

Sparks is back and celebrating the season with the new art installations and a culturally infused Victorian Square! Put on your best black beret, pick up your trumpet, palette, or your script, and let’s get creative. Show us how you love and celebrate your favorite artwork.

Early registration is happening now!  Thinking about Christmas in the summer may seem a bit nontraditional, or even ABSTRACT, but these spots are going to fill up fast, so reserve your space in this year’s parade while you still can.
