About the Parade

In early years, the Merry & Bright Stroll on State Holiday 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, sponsored by The Power Connection - IBEW 364 & NECA, features festive floats, high-flying balloons, dancing characters and music! It is an event not to be missed! 

Year 10 is no exception!  Be on the lookout for custom made Rockford-themed balloons, sponsored by Hard Rock Rockford!  The parade will kick up the event at 2PM, line up can begin at 1PM.
