|Event Date / Time:|
Can we win for the second year in a row? Join us with your rig and light it up for an amazing parade!
Meeting at the AAA Office 1539 N 33rd Place Sheboygan, WI around 1pm to decorate and take doors and tops off (if you want). Being we don't have indoor facilities for decorating the rigs, it's best to do most of it in your garage if you can.
Parade starts at 5pm, I'd like to leave the office by 3:30pm so we don't get stuck and blocked off like we did on the 4thof July parade this year. We'll go to supper after at Randalls which is a block from the AAA building.
In 2017 we took 3rd, in 2018 we took first so let's see if we can place again!
Free and Premium members event. You'll get the Holiday Parade badge on your profile.
This year’s theme is "Candy Factory"... show off your creative side by incorporating any of the sweet treats that bring joy to the holiday season! Because the parade is after dark, we require lights on all entries, so please work them into your design. Also, so as not to confuse the children, Santa Claus is not allowed on any float or entry except the Jaycees official Santa float at the end of the parade.

History of the Holiday Parade
In 2004, the Sheboygan Press was added as a sponsor to help save the Holiday Parade due to an increase in costs and a decrease in sponsorship dollars. The Sheboygan Jaycees felt that the parade would be a perfect tie-in with the Sheboygan Press because it aligns them with a positive community event attended by thousands in its service area.
In 2006, the Harbor Centre Business Improvement District was added as a sponsor for the same reasons.
In 2007, due to a loss of cash sponsorship, the Sheboygan Jaycees self-funded most of the parade out of its own budget. Even though there was some expense involved to continue the parade, the Jaycees overwhelmingly supported continuing the parade as a holiday tradition for the city of Sheboygan.
This incredible growth in the size of the parade is solely due to the demand of the community. Excluding weather conditions, this parade has seen a year over year growth in community participation and we see no signs of this trend slowing. It is the only winter parade in the City of Sheboygan.
The Holiday Parade over its history has turned into a family and community tradition. It signifies the beginning of the holiday season in Sheboygan!
