It is everyone's favorite time of year. The Christmas music is playing, lights are on homes across the Magic Valley, and Christmas decorations can be spotted all across town. Most enjoy the holidays for the gifts, the shopping, the music, the lights, and everything that comes with Christmas, but in the Magic Valley, there is more than just the usual to be excited about. Certain events take place each year that are traditions for families to attend and enjoy, and that some families can't wait for to come back around. One of the best events of the year that the Magic Valley puts on is the Festival of Lights, and it returns once again in 2023. Here is everything you need to know to prepare for this year's parade.

Every year a crowd flocks to Main Street in downtown Twin Falls to line the road awaiting one of the best parades of the year. The Festival of Lights Parade is back this year, and it is taking place this Friday, December 1 on Main Street in downtown Twin. The parade will begin at 6 PM, but you will want to arrive early to get a good spot. Make sure you bundle up, as it is expected to be a cold night, with a chance of rain and potential snow. Streets will begin being blocked off at 3 PM downtown, to prepare for the parade, so if you need to go that way, you may need to find a different route. If you are parked on Main, you will want to move your car before 3 PM, so it doesn't get towed.

The Festival of Lights is a parade that lasts typically around an hour, and it is best to bundle up as it is typically cold and is expected to be this year. Make sure to bring a bag of some sort, especially if you have kids, as a variety of candy will be handed out, and you never know what random gifts you could end up with as well. Show up early and bring chairs if you would like to sit. There are guard rails to lean up against, but there is no guarantee you will get near them. There will be around 70 entries into the parade this year, and the event will be sponsored by First Federal Bank. For more details on the parade, you can click the link in the paragraph above.
