Your favorite Springfield holiday tradition, the Christmas parade takes to the streets of downtown Springfield at night this year beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15. See marching units, hear holiday music and see the Jaycees’ light-show float with Santa and Mrs. Claus riding on it under the streetlights and stars. The theme this year is Light Up the Holidays and organizers hope to have lots of lit-up floats and entries. Judges will be casting their ballots at the stand on Sixth Street in front of the Old State Capitol. The parade starts at Seventh and Jefferson, moves down Seventh to Capitol, then from Capitol to Sixth, back up Sixth to Washington.
