Los Altos Festival of Lights Parade

Sun, Nov 26, 2017

6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Downtown Los Altos

State St & Main St, Los Altos, CA (map)

The Los Altos Festival of Lights Parade was the creation of three downtown Los Altos merchants: Hope Higbee, Marion Jackston and Jack Huston, all of whom were inspired by the idea of a light parade. In 1977, these merchants convinced the Los Altos Village Association Sales Promotion Committee to stage a Parade on Thanksgiving evening with the intention of promoting good will and holiday spirit. With a few lit costumed characters taken from fairy tales, and Walter Singer, a merchant and businessman festooned as the town Santa Claus, the Parade started at Third and Main Streets, traveled down Main, turned up State Street, and disappeared into the crowd.
