100+ Families In Lights: Norte Does the Downtown Light Parade

Join us, as we join Downtown Traverse City Association for the 3rd Annual Downtown Traverse City Light Parade. The parade is being held this year on Saturday, November 23rd and will begin at 6:30 pm. The route will follow E. Front Street, from Franklin to Union.

The Norte parade entry will feature 100+ families decked out in lights on shovels, bodies and bikes! Roll and stroll with us!

 

Date:
Saturday, November 23, 2019
Time:
Parade starts at 6:30m, arrive no later than 6:15pm for staging
Where:  
Staging is on Franklin Street just north of State – look for our flags. We’re #4 in the line-up.
What to wear:
Dress warmly and have your walking shoes/boots on. The more orange the better.
What to bring: 
Lights, lots of lights. Flashlights, headlamps, battery-powered Christmas lights, glow sticks, you name it. If it lights up, bring it — or wear it, or carry it.
Give back?
Si. Please consider bringing an unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots. We’ll collect at the Norte staging area. Gracias!
Do I bring my bike? 
You can bring your bikes if you really want to. Per past experience, though, we’ve found that the parade can get a little slow at times and you’ll likely end up walking with your bike. Bike or walk, doesn’t matter. Do what makes you happy!
Parade route: 
East Front to Franklin to Union (Just a few blocks!)
What are we doing in the parade? 
Well, we will be blasting the tunes and getting you pumped up to walk, skip, dance and dish up high-fives to everyone you see along the route. Line up will be as follows: 2 flag bearers up front, walkers behind them, and next then the orange trailer with music. Folks on bikes will bring up the rear.  
Can I invite friends to be a part of our group? 
Yes! Just share this page with them and they can sign up below. Easy peasy.
