Chippewa Valley Parade of Lights

There's something truly magical about holiday lights. Just pouring a cup of hot chocolate, getting in the car with your family and driving aimlessly around town looking at homes decked out in holiday lights brings so much joy to the heart. This year, the Eau Claire Parks and Recreation Department took this holiday tradition to the next level by creating the Chippewa Valley Parade of Lights. Here's what goes down: homes & businesses in the Chippewa Valley register to decorate their house/yard with holiday lights, their address gets featured on a map and YOU get to drive around town looking at the brightest and most festive houses/businesses in our area. Each participating address will be included on a map and have its own yard sign displayed from December 1-31, 2021 that indicates they are a part of the parade. So, fill up the gas tank and crank the holiday tunes because it's certainly the most wonderful time of the year in Eau Claire!
