Stafford's Downtown Petoskey Holiday Parade

Holiday spirit will be coming your way during the 2018 Stafford’s Downtown Petoskey Holiday Parade, Saturday, November 24 at 10 a.m. The parade will wind through Downtown streets and end at the Perry Hotel, where children will have those all-important conversations with Santa.

There will be excellent performances by the Petoskey High School Marching Band, floats, and walking ensembles representing many businesses and nonprofits in the community, and much more.

This is an event for the whole family and one you won’t want to miss it!


A great way to give back…

Downtown Petoskey is proud to announce this year's parade will be an excellent way to support local families in need!  As part of the Toys for Tots program, the U.S. Marines will be collecting new, unwrapped toys during the parade, for the many northern Michigan families who will be unable to afford gifts during the holiday season.



We’ve decided to sweeten the pot and add prizes for the best parade entries!

You could take home the First Place Prize of a Pizza Party at the Noggin Room for up to 30 people!
