Grab your family and come to Downtown Artesia as we ring in the 2018 holiday season with Light Up Artesia!

Many of them will be offering specials and sales for you to get your holiday shopping done! You will also find some local Artisans showcasing their holiday treasures all along Main Street. Shopping begins at 4:30 pm!

Then grab a hot chocolate and a chair to enjoy the Xcel Energy Parade of Lights that will begin at 6:00pm and will feature many fun twinkling floats. These fabulous floats will usher in Santa Claus at the end! After the parade, Santa Claus will then stop in at the Ocotillo Performing Arts Center to hear every child’s holiday request. There will also be an opportunity to take your family’s photo with Santa Claus!

You and your family can join in on the fun! This year’s parade theme is “Winter Wonderland” and there is no cost to participate in the parade. There will be prizes given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place floats. There is also still time to sign up to be a vender at this year’s event!
