Santa returns to the grand city of Dowagiac for southwestern Michigan’s largest lighted Christmas Parade on Friday, December 6. As you await the evening’s festivities, step inside Front Street Crossing to warm up and savor some FREE hot chocolate sponsored by John Seculoff of Edward Jones. Other local businesses and street vendors will also be open selling sweet delights.
Beginning at 6 pm, gather at Beckwith Park for the annual Tree-lighting Ceremony and pre-parade entertainment. At 7 p.m., listen for the bell of the Town Crier as we usher in one of Michigan’s largest holiday events. The Candle-light Parade consists of over 100 lighted floats, costumed characters, and marching bands.
Please be sure to join us on this magical evening in downtown Dowagiac. It is the perfect way to begin the Christmas season with your community, friends and family.
