Bakersfield Christmas Parade Thursday December 6, 2012 Starts At 6pm on 23ABC

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Nothing lights up a dark winter night like the sights and sounds of a festive Christmas Parade. Folks of all ages will brave a cool winter breeze to gather along the streets of downtown Bakersfield in anticipation of the arrival of brightly decorated floats with their colorful characters and Jolly Old St. Nick in his bright shining sleigh.

Join us Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012 at 6 p.m. for the 30th annual Bakersfield Christmas Parade as we watch the magic begin and ordinary streets turn into something very special. “An American Christmas” is the theme for this year’s event and some 90 entries will adorn the streets of downtown Bakersfield with Christmas themed floats, light displays, marching bands, drill teams, horse drawn carriages, community groups, classic vehicles, and live performances by local youths.

What used to be just a GREAT PARADE has now become a destination for excitement and an afternoon and evening of fun for all!
