Official Communications from the Town of Lyons

Parade Time: 6:30 p.m.


Early communication of this year's Holiday Parade of Lights mistakenly listed the parade's start time as 6:00 p.m., when actually, the parade begins at 6:30 p.m. By the time we realized this error, posters, e-communications, and newspaper inserts had already been sent. 
We apologize for this mistake - our human side is showing. We hope you can join us for the parade at 6:30 p.m. (and not 6:00 p.m.).
