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.



Holly Jolly Folly is the funnest of fundraisers
