19th Annual Parade of Lights

Volunteers for Parade of Lights 2019

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the 19th Annual Champaign Center Parade of Lights, presented by Christie Clinic! This event requires many helping hands and there are several ways to get involved. We encourage you to bring along friends, family, etc. as there are varying degrees of participation and time slots to be filled. Our greatest need is for Parade Safety volunteers from 5-7 p.m. Get front row access to the parade! All volunteers will get a keepsake Parade of Lights hat and free hot chocolate! 

Without volunteers, this event would not be possible. We deeply appreciate your willingness to support the Parade of Lights!

Date: Saturday, November 30, 2019

Time: 10:30 a.m. - 8:30 p.m. (Parade at 6:00 p.m.)
