A Parker Christmas Holiday Tradition
“ Magic on Mainstreet” is happening once again at the town’s family favorite small town USA holiday Christmas Carriage Parade
Saturday – December 14, 2019 at Noon Mainstreet in Downtown Parker
Come and experience that holiday feeling in the air and enjoy this all-equestrian parade made up of dozens of horse-drawn carriages, wagons, minis and marching bands, surreys, and stagecoaches from across Colorado, all dressed up for the holidays. With a different theme each year, the parade continues to stay small and give you that locals feeling that is becoming harder to find. Join the fun on this special afternoon when the streets are lined with families and eager children hoping to catch a glimpse of Santa.
The Town hosted photo opportunity with Santa will now be part of the North Pole Pass Experience, which requires pre-purchase. (parents bring your own camera – there will not be a professional photographer on site!)
Event-goers also enjoy a holiday farmer’s market, a petting zoo and pony rides, ice sculpting and visiting time and pictures with Mr. and Mrs. Claus!
Limited Handicap-Accessible parking will be available at the Schoolhouse at Mainstreet, 19650 E. Mainstreet.
