Lake Orion is the home of the largest lighted Christmas Parade in Michigan! On Saturday, December 3rd, parade spectators see a community that comes out in full force to celebrate the season. Floats and vehicles are brightly illuminated with an assortment of Christmas lights. Marching bands blare holiday music. Community groups from the Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, civic organizations, dance studios, local dignitaries and school groups proudly strut down the street and wave to the crowds of onlookers. The parade is capped off by a visit by Santa and Mrs. Claus in his resplendent sleigh, waving to his fans of all ages.

Following the parade, look for Santa’s tent on the corner of Broadway & Shadbolt, to take a picture with the big man and share a warm cup hot chocolate!
