About the event

You are invited to join us for our annual Night of Lights Parade! Venture to Downtown Danville on December 1st, 2023, for this glorious parade of lights. The parade begins promptly at 6 PM.

This year’s parade theme is “Miracle on Vermilion Street”, based on the holiday classic we all know and love!

The parade heads south down Vermilion Street, starting at Williams and ending at Towne Center - so find a place along the route and enjoy! Parade announcements will take place under The Fischer Marquee with concessions available to all.
