All of Downtown will sparkle this weekend with the 21st Annual Greeley Lights the Night Parade. The parade is Saturday, November 26 from 5:30 - 7:00 pm. It starts at 9th Avenue and 15th Street and ends at Lincoln Park with a lighting ceremony and a visit from Santa Claus.

Over 60 lighted entries highlight the parade, which is presented by the Greeley Chamber of Commerce/Visit Greeley in addition, to the lighting ceremony in Lincoln Park, presented by the Downtown Development Authority and the City of Greeley. It serves as the official holiday kick-off for the City of Greeley and surrounding areas.

I have the honor of announcing the parade again this year in front of the Rio at 9th Avenue and 9th Street. My lovely wife, Jenny, took pictures of last year's parade.
