On Saturday, December 3, the community will come together for the annual Holiday Parade of Lights, with the 2016 theme, Do You Hear What I Hear? This year’s town-wide event is packed with exciting activities for the whole family, including a special visit from reindeer and Percheron horses, from 3 to 6pm in Sandstone Park, a lively parade through Town, beginning at 6:30pm, and a spectacular fireworks display at the close of the parade.
Following the fireworks show, Sandstone Park will host live music, Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and the highly anticipated Parade Awards Ceremony. A panel of judges will award the outstanding parade entries in the categories of “Best Use of Lights,” Best Representation of Theme,” and “Overall Parade Winner,” along with winners from each entry type. Sign up
This grand holiday welcome wouldn’t be complete without the bright glow of Lyons’ notable light show. Colorful, captivating, and synchronized to music, the Lights in Sandstone Park is long-standing community favorite. The 160,000-light production – complete with a 11,200-light mega tree –will debut at 5pm on December 3, and illuminate Sandstone Park each night, through December 31.
All are invited to ring in the holiday season with dancing lights, fireworks, and celebration of community togetherness in the glowing town of Lyons, Colorado!
