San Rafael Parade of Lights & Winter Wonderlan...

Presented by Steven Restivo Event Services at Downtown San Rafael

Brrr! Snow returns to Marin and sets the tone for winter fun at the annual San Rafael Parade of Lights and Winter Wonderland holiday celebration.

Located on Fourth Street between B Street and Lootens in Downtown San Rafael, the celebration features a Holiday Marketplace with unique arts and crafts, live entertainment, children’s activities, the beloved snow-sledding hill, a tree lighting ceremony, and the celebrated Parade of Lights with Santa and his friends – one of the largest holiday parades in the Bay Area.

An annual Bay Area tradition, this free event brings together those near and far to celebrate and ignite the holiday spirit. The festivities begin at noon on Friday, November 24th when a sledding hill with over 40 tons of snow is constructed on A Street between Fourth Street and Fifth Avenue in San Rafael.

The sledding continues on Saturday, November 25 from 9am to noon (or until snow is no longer safe).
