Float or fly to Davis Park as we begin our Halloween celebration with kid’s games and activities with Chili Rec! The grand finale of our event will be a Costume Contest. Prizes will be awarded to the top costumes by our Town Board members.

Community Tree Lighting and 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 Chili Rex. Food will be available for purchase.

Friday, November 30

The Parade begins at 6:00 pm (corner of Paul Road and Chili Ave near K-Mart plaza) and the Tree Lighting is at approximately 6:30 pm.

*If your family, organization or business is interested in being in our Parade of Lights, please email for a parade application
