50TH DOWNTOWN APPLETON CHRISTMAS PARADE
After a one-year hiatus, the Appleton Parade Committee is proud to present the 50th Downtown Appleton Christmas Parade on Tuesday, November 23, 2021. “Santa Claus is coming back to College Avenue,” said Corey Otis, Appleton Parade Committee Chairperson. “We’re thrilled the jolly old elf, marching bands, and bright, beautiful floats will return to Downtown Appleton.”
The Downtown Appleton Christmas Parade is the largest nighttime parade in the Midwest. The parade will begin at 7:00 p.m. and move east on College Avenue from State Street to Drew Street. The Downtown Appleton Christmas parade annually draws 80,000 spectators to Downtown Appleton. Additionally, a television audience of over 100,000 view the parade live and during rebroadcasts on CBS 5, WFRV-TV.
The theme of this year’s parade is “Superhero Christmas!" The Parade Committee encourages all floats and walking units to embrace this year's theme by highlighting heroes: real and/or fictional. From webslingers to first responders, caped crusaders to frontline workers, area kids and adults are inspired by the courage and sacrifice they see on the page, on the screen, and in our community. We’re all hoping we can enjoy a “super” celebration of the holiday season.
Shirts and bibs can be picked up at the Fox Cities Exhibition Center between 2—6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 24 and beginning at 6:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
The Trot will start promptly at 8 a.m. with a wave start.
Wave One: 5-Mile Run
Wave Two: 2-Mile Fun Run
Wave Three: 2-Mile Walk
Wave Four: Dog Jog
Please line up in the appropriate wave. Slow movers and strollers are asked to line up near the back of their respective group.
Please note that the course will split at Franklin St. at the 1.67 mile mark so please make sure you are following the signs — if you turn left you will be on the 5-mile course and there is no turning back.
