Every December, Colorado Springs holiday tradition gathers crowds of spectators. About 60,000 people flock into the streets to watch 3,000 participants in the parade, a stunning display of lights, music and performances. Also, 200,000 viewers watch the parade on TV.
Bands, floats, horses, cultural and artistic programs, and festivities make this event so special. The Festival of Lights Parade is a nonprofit organization that has been producing the parade since 1984.
Colorado Springs Festival of Light Parade starts at the intersection of Tejon St and St. Vrain St in Downtown Colorado Springs and ends at the intersection of Tejon St and Vermijo Ave.
