The Festival of Lights Parade Association Board of Directors


Our board is made up entirely of volunteers from our local community. They carry out all the tasks necessary to stage the parade, including float construction and maintenance, costume design and repair, fundraising, volunteer coordination, and parade content management. You may even recognize some as costumed characters on parade night!
