Christmas Parade in Aldergrove
Aldergrove celebrates the Christmas season most years with a parade at night along the Fraser Highway on the second Saturday in December.
The parade and party were cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19. In 2021, the parade took place on December 11th. In 2022, the Christmas Light Up Parade returned on Saturday, December 10th. It began at 6:00 pm.
The parade typically features over three dozen entries and goes from Old Yale Road to around 271st street. It’s a small parade, but a nice one. Entries include trucks with pretty lights, tractors and a few floats. Expect to see fire trucks, Santa Claus and various community organizations and businesses in the parade.
After the 2019 parade, the community was invited to an after-party at Elks Hall which is located at 27309 Fraser Highway. The festivities there included choir performances, face painting, crafts and other family-friendly activities and entertainment.
In 2022, folks were invited to a pre-parade gathering at 5:00 pm. There were free activities for all to enjoy at Aldergrove Plaza, located at 272nd Street and Fraser Highway. There was food, drinks and live entertainment at the event.
