The 38th Annual Festival of Lights in Colorado Springs, CO is an event that will be remembered for years to come. With an expected attendance of around 70,000 spectators, the city center will be filled with captivating artistic displays, enthralling performances, and the magical atmosphere of the season. From bands to floats and a variety of unique entries, participants will compete for the highest honors in their respective categories. This year, the parade will take place as usual in downtown Colorado Springs on Vrain Street and head south on Tejon to Vermijo Street. As the children wave their illuminated swords around, their parents can't help but feel excited at seeing Santa Claus and all the twinkling lights.
Denim Peterson will be driving the streetcar from Adventures out West to the carriage of the Garden of the Gods during the parade. Music bands will be playing throughout the event, and a woman will be performing with LED dance wings. The Festival of Lights parade committee reserves the right to remove from the parade any participant who fails to comply with the rules and regulations. The Pikes Peak Adaman Club will also be participating in this year's parade. A nonprofit organization for the Festival of Lights Parade is defined as a local organization with revenues derived largely from donations and grants. Preparations for this year's parade are coming to an end, as volunteers put the finishing touches on floats, such as the one being made by students and staff from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs.
With so much to look forward to, this year's Festival of Lights promises to be an unforgettable experience.
