About the Parade
In early years of Stroll on State, the parade started out featuring a few horse & wagons and Santa Claus leading up to the tree lighting. However, starting in year 5, the parade was super-sized! Stroll on State’s Holiday Parade features festive floats, high-flying balloons, dancing characters and music! It is an event not to be missed! (The Stroll on State Parade will also be aired live on WREX.)
To apply to be a participant in the parade, please fill out an application form by September 1. (Parade application coming soon!)
