Join us in downtown Prescott for first the Christmas Parade and then later that night for the 65th annual Courthouse lighting.
These events officially kick off Prescott’s Christmas season, which could arguably be labeled the main event season in Prescott considering our town IS called “Arizona’s Christmas city.”
And… trust us when we say, the Christmas events coming up in the next weeks are ones you will not want to miss!
The Christmas Parade will begin at 1PM on Saturday, December 7th, giving you plenty of time to walk around after the parade and enjoy the downtown area before the lighting ceremony begins at night.
At 5PM there will be musical groups performing Christmas songs followed by a reading of the nativity story from the Bible to bring joy and cheer, and a reminder of the reason for the season. The lighting of the courthouse is at 6PM where the entire downtown area is lit up in a spectacular show of Christmas lights and celebration.
Nearly every tree is wrapped in colorful lights, the gazebo is a beacon on display of Christmas radiance, and the courthouse building itself it aglow with Christmas lights and light up decorations to showcase its historic beauty.
Enjoy the lights, an awing sight to see, and hang around afterward to take it all in. With countless restaurants, coffee shops, bars, vintage shops, and so much more, you will have no trouble finding a warm beverage and something to do with your friends and family after the lighting.
We hope you come out to see the show, to take in the Christmas season, and connect with your loved ones!
