The holiday season is a magical time in High River, as the community comes together to create delightful festivities for the whole family. If you are looking to get into the holiday spirit – look no further. The charming and lively streets of High River transform into an enchanting Christmas vision with intoxicating smells wafting from the cafes, trimmed trees and Christmas balls hanging in shop windows and numerous specialty stores offering one-of-kind gifts.
Light Up George Lane Park
December 6th, 2019
As the park comes aglow with thousands of lights, the Christmas spirit within each of us lights up as well. Live entertainment and caroling on stage and a Christmas market will make it an unforgettable evening. Join us at 5:00 PM for the official light-up and stay for the live entertainment.
Santa Claus Parade
December 6, 2019
Following Light Up George Lane, the 33rd Annual Santa Claus parade gets underway at 6:30 PM. Unlike any other holiday parade, this unique High River experience sees everything from enchanting dancers, to jolly carolers to incredible floats with a big sprinkle of prairie appeal. This year’s Winter Wonderland theme is sure to add some extra magic to the event. Santa will be in the Museum of the Highwood following the parade so don’t forget your camera!
We always recommend heading to the Light Up and Santa Claus Parade festivities early. Avoid the rush, grab a warm drink and explore the Town without the frenzied pace of the holidays.
