APS Electric Light Parade and More in Phoenix

Lately my daughters have been asking to go to a parade. Every time we pass where the Veteran's Day parade was, they inform me of this. We missed the parade in Tempe last week, but it looks like I'm in luck.

Route: The APS Electric Light Parade travels along Central Avenue from Montebello to Camelback, east on Camelback to 7th Street, 7th Street south Indian School.

Viewing and parking spots along the parade route are on a first come first serve basis, so pack your lawn chairs, cozy blankets, some snacks and hot chocolate and head down to Phoenix for this spectacular event.
