Downtown Springfield Association

Join us for the 2018 Christmas Parade!

Downtown Springfield Association invites the community to celebrate the “Wonders of Christmas” at the 2018 Parade on Dec. 8 at 2 pm. Whether you love polar bears in festive scarfs, ice skating penguins or a walrus sipping hot cocoa, we want to see your favorite holiday woodland creatures deck downtown with cheer.


The Downtown Springfield Christmas Parade is a great way to get the word out about your business or nonprofit. In addition to the 10,000 people that attend the parade every year, KOLR10 broadcasts the parade on Christmas Eve, Day and New Year’s Eve–expanding your reach.

Apply to have a spot in the parade here. Space is limited and subject to sell out. Deadline to apply is Nov. 16. 

Upon approval, you will receive an email from event staff with a link to pay for your entry fee–early-bird rates available to anyone who applies before Oct. 26.


Submit your High School Marching Band and Drum & Bugle Corp Application available here. Complete the contact form and submit by November 16, 2018.
