All entries must adhere to the Rules & Regulations

Join us for live music before and after the parade at Auburn City Hall. Then watch as the community brings out their lighted holiday parade entries! We’ll wrap up the event with the annual tree lighting at City hall plus a visit from Santa.

We anticipate this event being very crowded, please mask-up when in crowded areas to protect yourself and others.

Santa is looking for a special helper to light the tree in front of City Hall.  Nominate a child between the ages of 5 and 9 for their chance to visit with Santa and make holiday memories. Nominations are due by Monday, November 29th at 5 PM.
