"Home For The Holidays"

For 2023, the Holiday Parade is featuring the theme "Home For The Holidays", so you can decipher that as you wish.

The parade is scheduled to begin at 6:30 PM this FRIDAY, November 24th in Downtown Billings. Remember that parking availability is plentiful in the downtown parking garages.

This year, the Holiday Parade is again a great way to celebrate the season by bringing the community together to view over 75 holiday floats decorated for this year's theme, with Santa riding through as the parade finale!

Also this year, thanks to TDS Fiber & Valley Credit Union, the family can take the kiddos to the Valley Credit Union branch on 2nd Avenue North for FREE pre-parade photos with Santa from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM.
