Lighted Christmas Parade
Clow Train Voted the #1 Holiday Event in the State of Iowa by Main Street Iowa, this unique Christmas Parade is a spectacular event and shouldn't be missed. Lighted parade entries travel through the historic downtown area which includes our famous bandstand, also lit up for the occasion! This magnificent annual event, held on the Thursday and Friday following the Thanksgiving holiday, draws as many as 10,000 visitors to Oskaloosa.
You won't want to miss this great event which has NEVER been cancelled because of weather. The lighted parade is held the Thursday and Friday nights following Thanksgiving. Thousands of lights adorn the dozens of floats which parade around the city square; some floats are as large as a city block. (See the Calendar or Holiday Happenings Brochure for dates & details.)
