Seaside’s Holiday Parade of Lights
The Parade of Lights and lighting of the community tree begin the holiday season in Seaside. The Parade begins on Necanicum Drive at 1st Avenue and moves on to Broadway to the musical tree of dancing lights, set in the pocket park at the west end of the Carousel Mall. Lighted floats, families, pets and community groups are decked with festive lights and parade watchers join at the end to gather around the tree and sing carols. Santa and his elf talk with children. Hot cider, cocoa and cookies are served and Santa’s elf hands out candy canes to children to close this joyful evening of Christmas by the sea.
