The shop local holiday season officially kicks off on Saturday, November 26, Small Business Saturday, in the heart of Downtown Champaign! Join us to see a procession of lighted floats followed by the one-and-only Santa riding up on his sleigh during the 22nd annual Champaign Center Parade of Lights, presented by Christie Clinic!
This year’s parade theme is THE ISLAND OF MISFIT TOYS, inspired from the 2001 animated musical film Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys, a celebration of self-expression and acceptance. The parade will start promptly at 6pm.
