Town of Chili Community Events

Community Tree Lighting & Parade of Lights

Bundle up as we bring the holiday cheer to Chili! Local organizations, residents and businesses will brighten the night during the Parade of Lights, which will lead Santa Claus to the stage outside the Chili Senior Center. The Chili Community will then gather around to kick off the holiday season with the lighting of the Town Christmas Tree. Stick around for festive fun outside the Senior Center including carols, children’s activities led by Recreation Staff, and horse-drawn wagon rides with Santa Claus and Rudolph. Food will be available for purchase. *Road will be closed  on parade route 5:30 until approx. 6:45 pm*
