Holiday Parade brings on the ho-ho-hos
Kalamazoo Holiday Parade

With marching bands, holiday-themed floats and giant balloon characters, the annual Kalamazoo Holiday Parade, on Nov. 16, is sure to get even the most crotchety humbug feeling a little Christmas cheer.

Grab a blanket or chair, bring a bag to stash all the candy you’ll get, and park yourself along Lovell Street, Park Street, West Michigan Avenue or Portage Street in downtown Kalamazoo to partake in the fun.

The parade kicks off at 11 a.m. For more information, visit or call 344-0795.
