Parade of Lights in downtown Oroville Saturday

Dec 12, 2013 12:04 PM

The “Parade of Lights” aims to further brighten holiday spirits in downtown Oroville on Saturday, December 14.

The parade begins at 6 p.m. and the route follows Lincoln, Bird, Huntoon, High and Myers Streets. The judging stage will be at the corner of Bird and Myers Streets and the event will be announced by Vince Carano, President of the Oroville Downtown Business Association, and Bill LaGrone, Oroville’s Police and Fire Chief.

The parade is an 18-year tradition and this year’s Grand Marshall is Bob Buskirk from the Oroville Dam Cruiser Car Club. Festively decorated shops throughout downtown will also be open during the day, and appearance from Santa Claus will cap-off the celebration as he rides high on a fire truck ladder.

Parade of Lights is co-sponsored by the Oroville Downtown Business Association, Oro-Dam Cruisers, the Oroville Area Chamber of Commerce, Oroville Supplemental Benefits Fund and the City of Oroville along with coordination from Ray Lager of Upstate Community Enhancement Foundation.
