The Dickens Holiday Parade will be held Friday, Dec. 2 at 6:30 p.m. in downtown Ripon.

Parade entries can include local businesses, service organizations, civic organizations, school clubs, musical groups and more.

“The Holiday Parade of Lights gets bigger and better each year and I can’t wait to see all of the lights and creativity that people will bring,” Ripon Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Mandy Kimes said.

Parade entries should decorate their entry with as many lights as possible to “light up” the streets.

A visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus will conclude the parade.

To register, visit or call the Ripon Chamber of Commerce at 920-748-6764.
