Assist in maintaining and refurbishing floats owned by the Festival of Lights Parade. Work parties occur every Saturday morning from September through November, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Hands-on electrical and mechanical experience is valuable but not required.


Design, create, and maintain costumes or help with try-on sessions through October and November. Or join us backstage all day at the Parade to dress characters, apply makeup, and help with collecting and laundering costumes at the end of the night. VIP seating for costume volunteers available! 


Always wanted to be in the parade? We need costumed characters, float pushers, and drivers. Prefer a behind-the-scenes role? Join our staging team, or help with novelty sales. Whatever your preference, we have a role for you!
