Merrysville Parade Santa web

Embrace the holidays at Marysville’s annual Merrysville for the Holidays event including the Electric Lights Parade and Tree Lighting on Saturday, Dec. 2, from 4 to 8:30 p.m. in Comeford Park, 514 Delta Ave. In addition, families will be able to enjoy musical performances; interact with live reindeer; explore outdoor vendors including nine delicious food trucks; see snow in the park; and take pictures with Santa. 


The Electric Lights Parade features a flotilla of vehicles, floats and walking groups decked out in glistening holiday lights. There is good word that Santa will be there, too! The parade begins at 6:30 p.m. and travels south on State Avenue from the former courthouse at 1015 State Ave. to Comeford Park. 


“The park will be full of fun activities, including free train rides prior to the Electric Lights Parade, adding to the magic of this season,” said Kristen Rasmussen, Recreation Supervisor. “New vendors have been added this year to give guests an opportunity to shop for holiday treats, decorations or gifts.” 


Following the parade, everyone is invited to count down with Mayor Jon Nehring for the tree lighting in Comeford Park at about 7:15 p.m. Free visits with Santa will begin immediately after the tree lighting; be sure to bring a camera to capture photos. Please leave pets at home.


Come hungry and ready to enjoy the tasty food and warm holiday drinks from food trucks available throughout the event: Big Red Truck, Black Sea Food Truck, Dreamy Drinks, Canela Mexican Café, Fil Up Food Truck, Joca Coffee Co., Kettle & Pop, Little Jamie’s Mini Donuts and The Food Atlas.


To join the parade, please register by Monday, Nov. 27, at Cost is $25 per entry (individual or group). Participants should plan to arrive at the Marysville Community Center parking lot at 5 p.m. on parade day. 


Because large crowds are expected for this event, plan ahead for parking and street closures on Saturday, Dec. 2.
