A Town of Parker Signature Event
Celebrate the Season!
Bundle up and bring your family and friends to kick-off the holiday season at the Mayor’s Holiday Lighting on Friday, Nov. 29 at 5 p.m. in O’Brien Park. Experience an exciting medley of the “Nutcracker of Parker,” by Colorado School of Dance and a special holiday performance from the Denver Municipal Band! Then, experience the magic when you join the Mayor, Town Council, Mr. and Mrs. Claus and the Parker Chorale at 6 p.m. for a Town sing-a-long of Silent Night before the grand park lighting.
Festive concessions including coffee, hot chocolate, popcorn, roasted nuts and light-up toys will be available for spectators to purchase and enjoy during the show.
Free carriage rides will be available at the park and around downtown Parker starting at 5 p.m., provided by the Town. Event-goers are encouraged to park in downtown Parker as the O’Brien parking lot will be unavailable due to the event. The Town looks forward to celebrating this honored tradition with you and your family.
Take the carriage over to PACE after the Holiday Lighting to have your picture taken with Santa! Visits with Santa will be available at PACE after the Holiday Lighting as well as every Saturday until Christmas.
Festivities begin at 5:00 p.m.
Entertainment at 5:30 p.m

It’s just not the Holidays until our Mayor flips the switch and lights all of the beautiful Christmas Holiday lighting in O’Brien Park on the Friday after Thanksgiving. This will be Mike Waid’s first event as the Mayor so be sure to come and see him in action.
Residents, guests and visitor will enjoy performances from local music groups and holiday treats from various Parker bakeries and coffee shops. The event is always free!
