The Light Your Way Parade is happening!

Good news! The Light Your Way parade is happening in 2021!

Our community LOVES the “Light Your Way” parade and was heartbroken when it had to be canceled in 2020. 

2021 Light Your Way Parade

Saturday, December 4

Downtown Terre Haute


The coordinators shared this update: 

“The Christmas parade is a great Terre Haute event kicking off the holiday season,” said John Mace, director of conferences and events at SMWC. “SMWC is a proud sponsor of this event, and we invite everyone to join us in celebrating our community this season.”

The 2021 parade route begins at 5th Street and Wabash Avenue, goes east on Wabash and continues until 9th Street. The area from 5th to 6th streets on Wabash Avenue is designated as a Sensory Friendly Area for those with sounds and food sensitivities. Therefore, food items will not be distributed in this one block area and no sounds will be used. However, parade participants can hand out non-edible items.

Want to be in the parade? Creative and unique entries aligned with the parade’s Christmas theme are being accepted from the community. Entries must be family-friendly, contain lights and portray a Christmas story or theme. Up to 80 entries will be accepted, and three awards will be given at the event: best overall, most creative and most lights.
