Join Peninsula Celebrations Society for the Sidney Sparkles Christmas Parade on Sunday, December 2 at 5:00 pm along Beacon Avenue in Downtown Sidney!
Brrrr. It’s cold (and sometimes rainy)
You just never know what the weather will be like on Parade day. Come prepared by packing layers and keeping dry.
The Parade route begins along Resthaven Drive and turns onto Beacon Avenue. It continue to run the length of Beacon Avenue, turning right onto Second Street and ending at Ocean Avenue. Once the parade completes its route, people are encouraged to move to Beacon and Bevan wharves and the Sidney waterfront around Beacon Park. From there, they will be able to witness the Lighted Boat Parade, which starts at least 15-minutes after the Sidney Sparkles Christmas Parade.
Best place to see the Parade
No matter where you stand along the route, you’ll see the parade in all its glory. Be sure to arrive early as spots can fill up quickly. The parade runs for about an hour.
