The Inaugural Parade of Lights will start at 5 p.m. The parade route will be along Mesquite Boulevard with the start being at the LDS Church parking lot, located at 100 North Arrowhead Lane. The parade will end at City Hall. The parade is intended to help raise food for the community food banks.
At City Hall, the festivities will kick off once the parade arrives. The annual tree lighting ceremony will be in the amphitheater in front of City Hall. Local groups and performers will be providing entertainment. Also during the evening, trophies will be awarded the winning floats for best overall float and most food gathered. Hot chocolate and cookies will be available too. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there passing out goodies too.
Those attending the parade are asked to also bring canned food to help the cause… City employees will walk along the parade route to gather the canned food during the parade.
A full slideshow of the parade will be posted to the MLN website either Thursday, Nov. 3 or Friday, Nov. 4.
