Fantasy of Lights Opening Night Parade



Kick off your holiday season right! We invite the community to join us as we light up the streets of Mill Avenue with festively decorated parade units of all shapes and sizes.

Every year following Thanksgiving, Santa Claus arrives in Downtown Tempe along with festive floats, a celeb parade Grand Marshal and local marching bands along Mill Avenue District.

The 24th Annual Fantasy of Lights Opening Night Parade takes place on Friday, November 23rd, 2018. The parade is once again sponsored by Wells Fargo while the Tree Lighting Ceremony is sponsored by Tempe St. Luke’s Hospital.

Starting on Mill Avenue at 3rd Street, the U-shaped parade route travels south to 7th Street, west on 7th through Centerpoint Plaza and north on Maple back to 5th Street. To get to the parade on time, know where to park and explore public transit options.

Make Downtown Tempe your Home for the Holidays this season!
