Mark your calendar for the City's annual kickoff to the holiday season!

The Encinitas Holiday Parade - presented by Ting Internet will take place on Saturday, December 3 on Coast Highway 101.  The parade begins at 5:30 PM with entries moving south on 101 from D Street to J Street. It is preceded by a 5:00 PM tree lighting ceremony with a brief appearance by Santa at the Lumberyard Shops courtyard (between H and I Street on the east side of 101).

The Encinitas Holiday Parade Committee is excited to announce the 2022 parade theme is “Classic Encinitas”.  From cars to fashion to music, and Encinitas legends, lore and tradition, at the 2022 parade we'll see our parade entries go all out representing what "Classic Encinitas" means to them.  Look forward to a blast from the past and a holiday celebration for ages! The Parade Committee is also happy to name Encinitas’ own, Warren Raps as the 2022 Parade Grand Marshal.  Give Warren a wave and a holler as he cruises the parade route at this year’s parade.
