Spark up the holiday spirit with the annual Festival of Lights Parade in Rapid City, South Dakota, which brings over 30,000 people to downtown Rapid City for a dazzling nighttime event. Featuring glowing floats covered in thousands of lights, horse-drawn carriages, animated scenes on flatbed trucks, sparkling vehicles, animals adorned in holiday decor, marching bands, and even a full-size passenger locomotive with over 100,000 lights, the parade has earned its reputation as the premier winter event in South Dakota, with lots of floats, music, food, fun, and more!

Join friends, family, and more for a surprisingly exciting festival filled with light. The Parade will begin at 6 p.m. on East Boulevard and head west on Main Street before turning onto 7th Street. Then, the parade will continue east on St. Joseph Street, ending at East Boulevard once more. All ages will enjoy the variety of floats, and the fine food just makes for an enjoyable evening you won't forget!
