Santa cruz holiday parade


Please join BirchBark for the Annual Santa Cruz Holiday Parade on Saturday, December 1st from 10 AM until 12 PM in Downtown Santa Cruz, starting at Pacific Ave. and Laurel St.

The traditional holiday parade is the official kickoff for the winter holidays celebration. Bands, Dancers, Classic Cars, Synchronized Librarians, perhaps even a “Rootbeer Float!” One never knows exactly what to expect at the Parade, but you can be sure to expect the whole community to show up and have a great time, and of course, at the end of the parade, sitting in a horse-drawn Victorian Carriage, the man of the hour is welcomed back to Downtown Santa Cruz.

Please bring your family and well-behaved pup. You are also welcome to dress up in holiday costumes! Please contact us if you would like to be in the parade. We’d love to have you!
