It’s time for Albuquerque’s brightest celebration. Dancing elves, prancing horses, marching Knights and, of course, Jolly Ol' St. Nick will be just a few attractions this year. This free family-friendly holiday event will roll through Historic Nob Hill featuring hundreds of floats, marching bands, fire trucks, car clubs, organizations and businesses. 

Parade organizers and more than 100 participating entries - comprised of 3,500-plus individuals - promised to dazzle spectators by bringing the sparkle, the glimmer and the twinkle to a new level this year, and they did!

Thank you to all for participating and making this year's parade the largest and the brightest!
