22, November -- PROVISIONAL Inverness Christmas Lights Parade 2020
Inverness / 17:00-18:30 https://www.facebook.com/InvernessFestivals/
The Inverness Christmas Lights Parade is one of the most popular events for children in our city's annual events programme.
After going to see the Reindeer in Falcon Square earlier in the day, the Marchers assemble at Crown Primary School to meet Santa, the Provost and host Nicola McAlley at 5pm before following the City of Inverness Pipe Band and Santa's Mascot Friends through Inverness City Centre where the little ones will stop every now and again magically switch on the lights by counting down from five.
It's fun and it's free and it wouldn't be the same without you.
