Orion Area Parade Group

The 2020 Orion Lighted Christmas Parade is Saturday, December 5th at 6pm in downtown Lake Orion.

Lighted Christmas Parade

Since 1989, the downtown streets of the Village of Lake Orion, Michigan have glowed with festive holiday lights the first Saturday of December. The Orion Lighted Parade has become a tradition for this community in northern Oakland County.


The parade boasts over 75 entries each year, from civic organizations, dance studios, scouting troops, local dignitaries, marching bands, school groups and more. The event is capped off with a special visit by Santa himself, much to the joy of the young and old in the crowd lining the village streets.


To find out more about our fundraising activities for the parade,visit our Holly Jolly Folly page.
