WHITEWATER, WISCONSIN, December 2, 2019 – Parade week has finally arrived! Volunteers and staff at Downtown Whitewater, Inc have been working furiously behind the scenes again this year to light up the night sky to celebrate the holiday season. The snowflakes are up downtown, the trees have been strung with lights and we’re ready to celebrate with our community. Join us for activities beginning at 4 p.m. on December 6, 2019.

This year’s parade theme is Peace on Earth. Entries have been pouring in for the last 6 weeks or so and we’re looking at another festive and good sized parade. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the extra special guest at the end of this year’s parade in his beautiful new suit. Thank you to downtown business 70×7 Trends for her beautiful work!

There are activities that are not to be missed, so please make sure that you check out the locations listed in the timeline below before and after the parade to continue the fun. We’ll have a Selfie Sleigh right at the corner of 1st and Main to capture holiday memories and the beloved s’mores station right across from there. Don’t forget to wander into all of your favorite downtown locations before the parade or into your favorite restaurant to warm up afterwards.
