A holiday tree lighting and parade will initiate this year’s “Light Up the Holidays” Downtown Davis event.
At 5:30 p.m., parade participants will begin to converge at the Davis Food Co-Op, with the parade officially starting at 6 p.m.
The parade will consist of a double decker Unitrans bus, a fire truck, bicyclists, strollers and walkers. They will start south on G Street, go west on Third Street and south on E Street to the plaza.
The holiday tree in the plaza will be lit at 6:30 p.m., and Santa will be on hand to greet children until 8:15 p.m.
Free screenings of How the Grinch Stole Christmas will be shown at the Varsity Theatre at 616 Second St.
There will also be free horse-drawn carriage rides from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., departing every 10 minutes in front of The Avid Reader at 605 Second St.
