See you again on December 2nd!


This year's 37th Annual event was held on Saturday, December 7, 2013, at 6 PM. 

Thank you!

The 2013 Montrose Christmas Parade turned out to be a fantastic night with clear skies and an amazing crowd packed into the quaint gentle curves of Honolulu Avenue.  The morning rains turned to sun right before the sunset and the cold temperatures just added to the ambiance.  We had a full line-up of local non-profit organizations, businesses, churches, clubs, VIP's, scouts and, of course, plenty of bands.  We thank you for attending, we thank our participants for their enthusiasm and we thank our supporters for helping us make this parade possible.

We will see you in 2014 for the 38th Annual Parade!


Do you want to relive the parade? You can when it gets rebroadcast.  Schedule coming soon.

Thank you to the International Christian Family Network for this community service. 

The live telecast was also be available on http://www.icfn.tv/ and Charter Cable Channel 382
