The annual Prairie du Chien Holiday Parade, presented by the city’s chamber of commerce will be held Friday, Dec. 3, at dusk, on Blackhawk Avenue.

Any business or organization wishing to participate in the parade is asked to begin lining up at 5 p.m. on St. Feriole Island. There is no fee to participate. Lighted floats and holiday music are encouraged. 

This festive parade in historic downtown Prairie du Chien officially kicks off the holiday season and serves as a reminder to shop local, shop the Prairie du Chien area this holiday season for gift giving.

Santa and Mrs. Claus are making a special trip back to Prairie du Chien to wish all of the holiday parade spectators a “Merry Christmas.” 

Afterward, join the Friends of Villa Louis as they celebrate the tradition of gathering for the holidays, at the Waterfront Hotel downtown. As a fundraiser for the Villa Louis, stop by after the Holiday Parade to visit with Santa, get pictures taken and sip on some delicious hot refreshments. There is a $5 fee to have your picture taken with Santa, as all proceeds will benefit the Villa Louis.

Bundle up and head to Blackhawk Avenue Friday for this year’s annual chamber of commerce event. For more information on how you can participate in this year’s holiday parade, contact the Prairie du Chien Area Chamber office at 326-8555.
