2018 Coronado Holiday Parade

Presented by

Friday, December 7, 2018

Orange Avenue from 8th Street to the Hotel Del Coronado


Share event

This hometown parade is a true holiday tradition and thousands line the street each year to kick off the holiday season in style! The parade starts at 6pm, but many come early to Rotary Plaza to sing carols from 5-6pm and anxiously await Santa’s arrival via fire truck.  Once Santa arrives, one lucky local family is selected each year to help the Mayor flip the switch on Star Pine, lighting the giant tree in all its glory. In 2017 we kicked off the Inaugural Coronado Tree Lighting Contest, giving local families the chance to nominate themselves (or friends) to be the official "Tree Lighters" with Mayor Bailey. 

Additional handicap parking is available on the 1100 block of Tenth Street and the 1000 block of C Avenue.  See the map for street closures and parade route information, as well!
