Join us for the 22nd anniversary of Fort Atkinson's downtown Lighted Holiday Parade featuring music, dancing and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. In the spirit of giving, we encourage parade attendees to bring a can of non-perishable food to the parade to support St. Paul's Lutheran School with their annual food drive for the Fort Atkinson Food Pantry.
Immediately preceding the parade at 5:15 p.m., The Blackhawk Running Club will hold its second annual Reindeer Dash, a one-mile loop course along the parade route. Registration will only be offered on-site from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. the day of the run near the intersection of Water and Main streets (next to Brock’s River Walk). The entry fee is $10 and includes jingle bells and reindeer antlers.
Immediately following the parade, stop by the Municipal Building for the 18th Annual United Way Chili Cook-Off where you can vote for your favorite chili and have your photo taken with Santa.
Show your community spirit on Saturday, November 11 at the Fort Atkinson Holiday Parade to kick off the holiday season!
**Please note that registration for the parade is closed and the Chamber has met its capacity for parade entries.
