Thank you!

Christmas in High River

2023

The Santa Claus Parade and Light Up George Lane Park could not happen without the support of organizations, service clubs, and the community.

Please join us in thanking everyone who were part of making the holiday season cheery and bright. Organizing 60 entries, drawing a crowd of 10,000 spectators, and putting up light displays across the park is no small feat.
