The 12th annual Town of Niagara Electric Lights Parade will be held this Saturday, November 5th on Military Road beginning at 6:30 PM. The parade begins at 4th avenue and continues down Military Road to the K-mart parking lot.
One of the major attractions is the arrival of Santa Claus who fittingly ends the parade and signifies the arrival of the holiday season in the Town of Niagara. Last year’s ELECTRIC LIGHTS PARADE drew several thousand spectators, along with the hundreds who were part of the bands, floats and community groups which took part.
A Food Drive will also be part of this year’s NIAGARA ELECTRIC LIGHTS PARADE. Volunteers will gather non-perishable food donations from parade spectators for local soup kitchens. If participants wish, Parade organizers encourage donations the food to their Church Food Pantries and let them know it is on behalf of the Niagara Electric Lights Parade.
The major sponsor for the parade is Republic Services (Allied Waste Industries of Niagara Falls, NY). Allied Waste owns and operates the Niagara Falls Sanitary Landfill, located at the intersection of 56th Street and Niagara Falls Boulevard.
Bob Koshinski and Town of Niagara Supervisor Lee Wallace will again serve as MC’s for the parade at the reviewing stand located just before the K-mart parking lot.
The ELECTRIC LIGHTS PARADE is organized and presented by the Town of Niagara and the Town of Niagara Business and Professional Association, Inc.
