2015 Celebration of Lights

Modesto's annual Celebration of Lights is scheduled for Saturday, December 5th and includes family-friendly events such as a Breakfast with Santa, Dickens' Faire and Modesto Certified Farmer's Market, and our annual Holiday Parade. Following the parade will be a traditional Community Tree Lighting and a Downtown Holiday Extravaganza occurring every weekend until Christmas. Parade entry applications will be available October 1st. Spaces are filled on a first come, first served basis, so you'll want to get your application in early.
