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. In 2019 the parade took place on December 14th beginning at 6 pm. It was also followed by a free after-party at the Elks Hall.
The parade and party was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19. In 2021, the parade began at 6:00 pm on Saturday, December 11th.
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.
