If you’re looking to take part in one of Tucson’s most endearingly festive annual events, the Downtown Parade of Lights is currently accepting float submissions.
Now in its 20th year, the holiday parade has a long and bright history in town of getting people together to look at a locally made light show. If you’re ready to put on your best Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen costumes, get the old Polka band back together, and cover your truck in as many lights as you possibly can, you should probably sign up to be in the parade this year.
Entry for float makers is $35 this year with possible cash prizes if your submission wows including $500 for the best in show and $250 for the best musical group. All those planning on entering must do so online by Friday, December 5.
The Downtown Parade of Lights will brighten up the streets of Armory Park starting at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 20. The event is free to attend.
