Join us for this Crystal City Christmas tradition!  The award-winning Parade of Lights is an evening parade in which The Gaffer District puts a unique spin on the traditional “March Down Main Street” where all participants are covered from tip to toe in lights!

Before the parade, join the fun in Centerway Square!  Enjoy holiday music, a sing-a-long, photos with Santa and games for kids, beginning at 4:00pm.  The magic continues at 6:15pm as Santa takes the stage for the lighting of the tree in Centerway Square.  The parade begins immediately after at 6:30pm.

Check out this year’s twist on a classic – a stationary parade where the floats stay in place and you stroll at your own pace! Don’t miss a special fireworks display to cap off the night, sponsored by Elmira Savings Bank.
