22nd Annual Parade of Lights

DATE: Dec 3

TIME: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

At the Parade of Lights, you can expect lots of trucks, lots of lights, and lots of people watching and having fun!

Every December brightly decorated semi-trucks pass through the streets of Thunder Bay, Ontario as the crowds are cheering and welcoming Christmas. The annual Parade of Lights starts at 7:00 p.m., turning the city into a magical wonderland. Thousands of spectators line the streets to welcome the parade and its participants.

The parade will follow the usual route, starting at Manitoulin Transport before heading down Main Street then Harbour Expressway where it will turn right onto Memorial Avenue and continue to Queen Street and then onto Fort William Road, ending on Water Street.

There will be a sensory friendly area on Fort William Road between Queen Street and Water Street where people can still enjoy the lights without getting overwhelmed by the loud sounds of truck horns.

Parade Walkers along the route will be wearing high-visibility vests and collecting donations that will go to support Autism Ontario-Thunder Bay and District, George Jeffrey Children's Centre, Special Olympics Ontario-Thunder Bay and Thunder Bay Therapeutic Riding Association.
