The parade attracts tens of thousands to the Rochester area. The parade is typically held on the first Sunday in December each year. Started by the Lion’s Club in the 1950’s, the parade became the responsibility of the Chamber in the early 1960’s.

Spectators are welcome to come on downtown, grab a spot along Main St., and watch over 100 floats, marching bands and community groups walk the parade! It’s a fun family-friendly event with much anticipation of the final float, graciously donated by Bordine’s Nursey, carrying Santa and Mrs. Claus.
