    Fall may have just started... But it is only 2 months until the Santa Claus parade and Yule Like Peoria. November 25th... Mark your calendar!


The Annual SANTA CLAUS PARADE – the longest running holiday parade in the country - steps off at 10:15 am on Friday (the day after Thanksgiving). Please join us in this great Peoria tradition as the parade takes a magical journey through the downtown streets of Peoria. Over 85 units of costumed characters, novelty walking units, horse units and decorated floats will surely get you in the holiday spirit and certainly delight the children along the route.
