O'FALLON ILLUMINATED CHRISTMAS PARADE

     The O'Fallon Illuminated Christmas Parade is fast becoming an anticipated tradition. The float beds from the fall festival are striped down, and our volunteers come back with their creative genius once again, building scenes to remind us of the warmth and reason for the Christmas season. But we don't have friends come to stand on a cold winters day to view regular floats. NO! These floats are pulled just after sundown and completely lit up with thousands of Christmas lights! This parade is our way of saying thank you to the O'Fallon Community for their support during our Festival. The O'Fallon Illuminated Christmas Parade is held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving each year. 

 
WE WILL BE HAVING THE 2009 CHRISTMAS PARADE!
