Coronado is gearing up for its much-anticipated annual Holiday Parade, a festive extravaganza that not only illuminates a community tree but also fills hearts with joy. Scheduled to begin on Friday, December 1 at 6:00 p.m., this long-standing tradition unites residents and visitors in a celebration of togetherness. According to the City of Coronado's official Facebook page, the Chamber's Holiday Parade is more than just a procession; it's a shared moment where the community comes together under the enchantment of festive lights.

As in previous years, the streets will be lined with eager families anticipating a joyful holiday experience. However, before the parade can make its way down Orange Ave., there will be road closures in effect from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m. on December 1st, ensuring a safe route for the festivities. Closures include Orange Ave from Fifth Street to RH Dana on both sides, C Ave between Sixth and Seventh Streets (park side only), Seventh between Orange and C Avenues on both sides, Isabella on both sides closed to Flora, and Park Place closed. Residents and parade-goers are advised to plan their commutes accordingly to avoid any unexpected holiday delays.

Following the parade, the tree lighting ceremony will take place. This collaborative effort between the City of Coronado and Discover Coronado promises to light up the sky with the essence of the season and fill the community with warmth and unity.

For those seeking more information, the City of Coronado's Facebook page provides a detailed parade route and road closure information to help navigate this festive yet busy evening.
