Holiday Events in Temecula 2017

December 1st @ 7PM- Old Town Temecula

Come one and all to celebrate this very special night of holiday lights, wonder, and cheer.  Join us to watch the 25th Annual Santa’s Electric Light Parade as it travels south through Old Town beginning at the intersection of Del Rio Road and Jefferson Avenue. The parade is scheduled for Friday, December 1, 2017 beginning at 7:00 pm sharp!

There will be twinkling floats, holiday music performed by school marching bands, and much more as we launch the Holiday season.  “Santa’s Electric Light Parade in beautiful Old Town Temecula gets our family in the Holiday Spirit every year. Watching friends and neighbors pass by in lighted Holiday garb or riding on huge lighted floats is a wonderful way to kick off the Season and enjoy the community pride that brings us together. From the hilarious to the humble, our annual family friendly Christmas Parade combines Temecula’s small town feel with Old Town’s charm for a magical hometown Holiday evening,” states Mayor Maryann Edwards.

Parade viewing will be along Old Town Front Street just south of Rancho California Road to the intersection of Santiago Road, and also on Jefferson Avenue between Rancho California Road and Del Rio Road on the west side of the street only.
