Prescott Holiday Light Parade & Bonfire Festival

Originally Published: November 23, 2022 12:05 a.m.

The Holiday Light Parade & Bonfire Festival returns for its 25th year in Prescott on Nov. 26 in downtown Prescott.

Starting at 6 p.m. on Cortez Street, a parade led by Santa will feature more than 40 colorfully lit floats and music from school marching bands. The parade ends on the field at Mile High Middle School, where the Bonfire Festival will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

There will be music, visits with Santa, and reindeer games for the kids. Attendees can also get a closer look at the illuminated floats - all parked on the field for viewing. Prescott High School and Bradshaw High School marching bands will perform at the Bonfire. Entrance to the field is through the gate on Goodwin Street, across from Old Firehouse Plaza.

This event is hosted by the Prescott Downtown Partnership and sponsored by Desert Financial Credit Union, Arizona Public Service, and Experience Prescott Office of Tourism. Free admission.

“We have more than 40 parade entries this year - beautifully lit floats that will light up the night in Downtown Prescott,” said Prescott Downtown Partnership board member, Matt Brassard. “Santa will lead off the parade in a decorated Arizona Public Service vehicle, and you can get your photo taken with him at the bonfire. Come kick off the Prescott holiday season with us!”
