The spirit of the holiday season is celebrated along the streets of downtown Pueblo with the annual Parade of Lights. Festive floats take to the streets while they glimmer with holiday cheer as thousands pack the sidewalks to catch a glimpse of their favorite parade entry. For nearly 30 years, Christmas carols, Santa sightings, and hot cocoa and cookies have drawn over 40,000 visitors to the parade route to partake in the magic of the holiday season.
