Welcome to the 2019 Lighter Side of Christmas Parade!
The 31st annual LSOC parade will be held this year on Saturday, December 7th at 6 pm, followed by a fireworks display in beautiful downtown Woodland Park, Colorado.
2019 THEME: “Woodland Park’s Christmas Vacation”
This year we are celebrating the 31st Anniversary of the Lighter Side of Christmas Parade and the 30th anniversary of the classic comedy film, National Lampoon’s “Christmas Vacation.” As the holidays approach, Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) wants to have a perfect family Christmas, so he pesters his wife, Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), and children, as he tries to make sure everything is in line, including the tree and house decorations. However, things go awry quickly. His hick cousin, Eddie (Randy Quaid), and his family show up unplanned and start living in their camper on the Griswold property.
Our goal is to have fun, let our imaginations run wild, and have the best event EVER in our community. What’s the plan for your Christmas vacation?? Remember, this is the LIGHTER Side of Christmas … Have fun! 🙂
2019 BENEFICIARY: Woodland Park Main Street
