Parade of Lights Theme is “A Caroling We Will Go!”
The Leadville Chamber’s Parade of Lights seems to get better and better every year! And this year is shaping up to be another contender for the pinnacle of holiday fun!
The Leadville/Lake County Chamber of Commerce Parade of Lights will take place on Saturday, Dec. 6, at 5:30 p.m on Harrison Avenue. This year’s theme is “A Caroling We Will Go!” and entrants are asked to pick their favorite Christmas carol and base their float or parade entry on that carol. If your business, organization, or family would like to be a participant in the Parade of Lights, everyone is welcome to join the festivities.
Following a wonderful Leadville tradition, Santa and Mrs. Claus are planning on riding along in the parade, and will be listening to Christmas wish lists from children inside the courthouse when the parade is over. Area merchants will provide hot chocolate and cookies after the parade to complement the evening’s festivities.
Entry forms for the parade can be picked up at the Leadville Visitor Center at 809 Harrison Ave or downloaded HERE.The coveted Santa Traveling Trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the Annual Parade of Lights!

The chamber is asking that parade entrants return the registration forms by Monday, Dec. 1. Call (719) 486-3900 with any questions.
