2017 Byron Center Christmas Parade “Let your Light Shine!”


The Byron Community Wellness Foundation is once again proud to host the annual Byron Center Christmas parade! The festivities will kick off on Saturday, December 2 at the ROCK at 4:00 pm where we will have Santa and a couple of his reindeer there to visit with kids. Santa will be there until 5:15, but his reindeer will stick around until 6:00 pm. The BC Chamber of Commerce will have hot chocolate available along with a warming station to keep you comfortable. At 5:30 the parade will depart from Nickels Intermediate, traveling around downtown Byron Center, ending back at Nickels School. Pathway Church will host their annual free chili dinner and Christmas concert immediately following the parade. Winners of the float contest will be announced at Pathway during their chili dinner.
