Christmas in West Allis
          West Allis Christmas Parade 2017
Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree at the Annual West Allis Christmas Parade
Saturday, December 2, 2017 | 4:45 p.m.

The West Allis Christmas Parade is an annual holiday tradition, and the only night-time Christmas parade in Southeast Wisconsin! Enjoy marching bands and live performers, creative floats and vintage vehicles, meet elves, cartoon characters, and of course, wave to Santa Claus himself at the end of the parade!

 This year’s theme is “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” a rollicking, rocking, rolling celebration of the season!

Parade Route
The Parade will be marshaled at the 81st Street (Gate 2) State Fair Park entrance.  The Parade will proceed east on Greenfield Avenue to 70th Street, then south to Orchard Avenue.
