Holiday Tea Party & Lights Fantastic Parade

Enjoy the annual lights parade and winter festivities in downtown Carbondale next Saturday at 6 p.m.

The Annual Lights Fantastic Parade will begin at 6 p.m. Prior to this, there are pre-parade festivities in downtown, including the Town Square Market's Holiday Tea Party with free samples of tea and pastries, door prizes and homemade gifts for purchase. Other vendors will also have food, hot drinks and samples. Local businesses will participate with light window displays.

Join us at 5:15 at the Town Square Market to check out the pre-parade festivities or come at 5:45 for just the parade.

We will text/call to meet up. If you join us after 5:15, please text to locate us.

We will pick a spot along the parade route on S. Illinois Ave. before 6. The annual lighted parade includes floats and marching bands and presents a striking visual effect after dark.

Look forward to seeing you!

    Hi everyone, I have more info about tonight's event. There will be (in addition to the above) a Cookie Walk at local businesses all the way down S. Illinois Ave. And reindeer and an ice skating rink at the Town Square.

    If we want time to do the Cookie Walk & window decorations, I suggest meeting sooner, at 5 p.m. (however, you are welcome to come any time and join us). I will be there by at least 5 p.m. - text when you get there.

    It is cold, so please dress as warmly as possible. Bring chairs for the parade if you would like a seat. We'll try to get a spot near Town Square Pavilion. If you would like to park and ride, free shuttles will run from Murdale Center & University Mall to downtown all evening.

    Please check your messages for my phone #. See you very soon!!
