Holiday Parades and Tree Lighting Ceremonies Happening Around Lansing 2019


Lansing Area Holiday Parades and Tree Lighting Ceremonies 2019

What’s better than watching a Holiday parade at home? Being at a Holiday parade in person of course! Bonus: when there’s a tree lighting at the end.

Better yet, if there’s fireworks too – sweet family memories are soon to be written.


Our family loves waking up on holiday mornings and turning on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade or Christmas in New York parades but there’s truly nothing like seeing in person all of the decked-out vehicles and people parading through the streets accompanied by lights and holiday music.

The Holiday spirit is palpable and the true magic of the holidays fill our hearts.


We have lots of options to get out and enjoy all of this splendor in Lansing and beyond.

So, “grab your coat and get your hat, leave your worries on the doorstep, just direct your feet” to the Holiday Parades and Light Ceremonies in the street!
