2018 Noblesville Christmas Parade Returns To November 25



Mayor John Ditslear has announced that this year’s Christmas Parade will be held on November 25, the Sunday following Thanksgiving. The 40th Annual Christmas Parade will begin at 2 p.m. The event was previously announced for December 1.

“After additional consideration, scheduling the parade in December was not fair to those who were counting on the parade taking place the weekend after Thanksgiving as has been our tradition,” Ditslear said. “I hope the move back to its November date will allow more participants and spectators out to kick off the holiday season in Noblesville.”

The parade starts at 16th and Harrison streets and will travel south on 16th Street to Logan Street, west on Logan to Ninth Street, north on Ninth to Monument Street, and east on Monument to 16th Street where it will end. The last entry in the parade will be Santa Claus himself, making his debut for the season. 

Early bird registration is $10 per entry and will be accepted until Friday, November 9. Regular registration is $20 per entry and will be accepted through Wednesday, November 21. The city is waiving the entry fee to all nonprofits organizations that want to participate. Forms may be downloaded by clicking here or you can register online. Please make checks payable to Noblesville Christmas Parade. Completed forms may be mailed with payment to Noblesville Christmas Parade Coordinator, Noblesville City Hall, 16 South 10th Street, Noblesville, IN  46060. Forms also may be e-mailed to mhoffmeister@noblesville.in.us.

Check-in will take place starting at 12:30 p.m. on November 25. Participants are asked to enter the parking lot by turning onto North 17th Street from Conner and make the bend to the left on Wayne Street (one way west). This is the only entry point for the parade route. Volunteers will be onsite to help stage vehicles to exit the parking lot’s North Entrance.
