See you again on December 2nd!


This year's 35th Annual event was held on December 3, 2011, at 6 PM. 


Thanks for attending and participating in our 35th parade!

The wind calmed and then stopped, the stars shined bright and Santa arrived in style.  We hope you enjoyed the festivities along Honolulu and the home town feel of Montrose.
