Festive Weekend Gets Underway Tonight

Posted on November 16th, 2018

Downtown Vincennes will come alive tonight for the annual Parade of Lights.

Stepping off at 6:30, the parade will fill the streets with Holiday themed floats designed by area businesses, bands and service organizations.

The parade is will feature a total of 103 entries, with jolly old St. Nick bringing up the rear.

After the parade, area children are invited to meet with Santa Claus at Thursday Church, located at 218 Main Street.

The parade always pairs well with the annual Christmas stroll. Local merchants will have extended hours so that shoppers can get a head start on their Christmas list.  

On Saturday, carriage rides will be available from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., joined by a Recipe Walk during the same time. Participants are invited to head downtown for free samples at local businesses and pick up the recipe of the foods they like the most.
