This year the Night of Lights Parade will be held on Friday, December 3, 2021 starting at 6:00 pm, brought to you by Downtown Danville, Inc., Vermilion Advantage, and the City of Danville.
Parade entries may include floats, bands, walking entries and vehicles. We highly encourage you to incorporate lots of lights into your entry so everyone can see you! Floats will be judged with a focus on creativity, use of lights, use of music and connection to this year’s theme with trophies awarded for the Mayor’s Choice Award, the Downtown’s Choice Award, the Vermilion Advantage Choice Award, and the Best Overall Use of Theme. This year, there will be no entry fee for school groups and not-for-profits. The fee for business entries will be $25. Due to the dark nature of this event in order to best view the lights, the parade does not allow the throwing or handing out of candy or any other materials. This is to create as safe of a viewing environment as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
Entrants will receive a packet with instructions and their lineup number the week of 11/29/2021.
Sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact us for more information.
Additional events are planned throughout the downtown before the parade. Follow the Downtown Danville, Inc. Facebook page for more information.
