Orion Area Parade Group

What happens when you invite over 300 cheery community members to a local dealership to enjoy great food, lively entertainment and desirable auction packages? You get the funnest fundraiser in Orion Township, The Holly Jolly Folly!


The Holly Jolly Folly, sponsored this year and for the past several by Golling Buick GMC, kicks off the Holiday festivities the night prior to the Orion Lighted Parade. Funds raised through ticket sales, a silent auction and raffles helps fund the many costs the Orion Area Parade Group incurs to deliver a fun-filled lighted parade each year.


This year's event will be Friday, December 5th at Golling Buick GMC, 1491 S. Lapeer Road, Lake Orion, starting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $33 each, or $300 for a table of ten, and can be purchased at Golling, as well as Ed's Broadway Gifts (2 S. Broadway, Lake Orion) and by email through the Orion Area Parade Group.


Download our flyer for more details and share this information with family and friends. Attending the Holly Jolly Folly is a great way to kick off the holiday season, take a picture with Santa himself, enjoy some holiday festivities with others in our community and raise funds for a worthwhile cause.

The Holly Jolly Folly is sponsored by Golling Buick GMC.
