Lakeshore Holiday Parade
When: Wednesday, November 22nd, 2023 at 6:30 p.m.
Where: Downtown Manitowoc – on Washington St starting at S 12th St, turns north on S 8th St and continues to the Rahr-West Art Museum where a Santa meet & greet takes place.

The Lakeshore Holiday Parade is a multi-community celebration in downtown Manitowoc that occurs the Wednesday before Thanksgiving every year at 6:30 p.m. Attracting over 5000 people, this is one of Manitowoc’s largest events and serves as a fantastic way to kick off your holiday season. This parade is numbered and judged to encourage holiday cheer; the top floats are recognized for their efforts at the following City of Manitowoc Common Council meeting (the third Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m.).
Parade registration is at no cost and will open in early fall for the 2023 Lakeshore Holiday Parade and will be limited to the first 80 valid entries. The parade has a theme every 5 years, and 2023 marks the 35th year. If you have a theme idea or question about the parade, contact Erika Christel of Visit Manitowoc at 920-686-3506 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
