Jump into Christmas with ÔFestival of LightsÕ

As much a tradition as Thanksgiving turkey and decorating the Christmas tree, the Niles Merchants Association always gives the holiday a great local start with their annual ÒFestival of Lights Parade and Tree Lighting.Ó Held the evening after Thanksgiving, this true blue community event features over 60 unique floats with marching bands, specialty service units, helium balloons, costumed characters, and the man of the season - Santa Claus!

Now in its 13th year, Events including ÒSpring Fever Car ShowÓ and ÒHot August Niles Car ShowÓ fundraisers as well as donations and volunteer efforts keep this fun parade going year after year. Grab your friends and family, bundle into coats and gloves and jump into the Christmas spirit at the ÒFestival of Lights.Ó Plan to come early to claim your best viewing spot!

To help with the parade and keep the tradition alive, contact the Niles Merchants Association at (510) 792-8023.
