We hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends yesterday eating all the best foods, and giving thanks for all you have.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, those of us who have been waiting eagerly for the Christmas festivities have to wait no longer!
Tomorrow night, November 24th, is Prescott’s 23rd annual Holiday Light Parade.
The Holiday Light Parade happens every single year on the weekend after Thanksgiving Thursday. The parade starts at 6PM and begins at the corner of South Cortez Street and Carleton Street in downtown Prescott. As one might guess from the name, this isn’t any ol’ parade. No, this parade is a spectacular sight to see with everything in it adorned with Christmas lights from bottom to top! Floats, dancers, marching bands, and so much more – all decked to the nines in lights to truly give meaning to the name “Holiday LIGHT Parade.” This is the first “Christmas event” that takes place in Arizona’s Christmas city and there’s nothing else like it to help you jump into the Christmas season and cheer.
After the parade, there are plenty of festivities going on around downtown to keep the fun going. There will be a bonfire and party at the Mile High Middle School field after the parade. Grab a bite to eat with family and friends at one of the many local restaurants within easy walking distance around downtown like The Raven, Bill’s Pizza, Bills Grill, The Park Plaza and Liquor Deli, Prescott Brewing Company, Rosa’s, and many more. Meet with friends for coffee or hot chocolate at one of the numerous coffee shops downtown such as Wild Iris and Cuppers Coffee House. Or, meet them out for a drink on the famous Whiskey Row with bars like The Point, Jersey Lily’s, and Matt’s Saloon to name a few.
There is much to do and see to kick of your Christmas Holiday season this weekend in downtown Prescott. We hope you’ll join us there, and bring your friends and family to enjoy the show!
