Kick off the start of the holiday season in Downtown Ontario with the annual Holiday Light Parade and Tree Lighting. The fun takes place along Euclid Avenue on Saturday, December 2, 2023.  The parade steps off at Fourth Street down to B Street along Euclid Avenue. Enjoy the show as we light up the night with festive colors and lights.

We have more magic in store this year! Following the parade, walk over to Ontario Town Square (located at 224 N. Euclid Avenue) for a Holiday Drone Show that will countdown to the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. All this holiday fun is sure to excite and delight all spectators.

While at Ontario Town Square, kids can send their letters to Santa and participate in some fun holiday cookie decorating. Guests will also enjoy free meet-and-greet photo opportunities with Santa. All events are free for all to enjoy!

This event will draw in thousands of spectators, so please plan accordingly.  For more information regarding all events, including street closures and parking, please visit OntarioCA.gov/HolidayLightParade or contact the Ontario Recreation & Community Services Department at (909) 395-2020.
