2024 Miracle on Kansas Ave Parade

Ring in the holidays with the
Miracle on Kansas Avenue Parade!

December 7, 2024

Join us for the 29th Annual Miracle on Kansas Ave Parade! Watch the floats and entries as they take to downtown covered in holiday lights, garland, and tinsel. We are back to our traditional route, on Kansas Avenue! Everyone is invited to line the streets along the parade route with their friends and family to view the floats as they cruise by.

The Miracle on Kansas Avenue Parade features “lighted” holiday-themed entries and the official arrival of Santa! After the parade, enjoy dinner downtown and stroll the avenue to see all the decorated storefronts and vote for your favorite window in the Window Decorating Contest. Instructions on how to vote will be in the contestants windows.
