Brentwood Hosts Annual Holiday Parade 

Despite some temporary setbacks, Brentwood’s annual holiday parade will be set to launch on Friday, December 7 for its 36th year. The parade, which was originally planned to commence on November 17, was briefly canceled due to air-quality concerns that threatened the safety of the community. However, on Wednesday, November 21, the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce made a public announcement declaring the parade’s rescheduled date in December. All community members are invited to downtown Brentwood to observe the jolly, holiday spirit while enjoying the parade filled with lights, music, and dancers under the starry night sky.

What to Expect This Year

This year’s procession is anticipated to be as delightful as the last. The holiday parade is organized by The Brentwood Chamber of Commerce, advertised as their largest free community event of the year. Each year, families from all over East County come over to downtown Brentwood to be part of the uplifting community spirit.

Winter Holidays Around The World

The theme for this year’s parade is ‘Winter Holidays Around the World.’ According to chamber member Laura Young, there have already been more than 45 entries submitted. Young stated that the chamber wants all interested community members to have the chance to showcase the innumerable amount of holidays that take place during this one very special time of the year. Parade chair member Michelle Lane said that guests can expect a visit from Santa, as he will be located at the Zamboni. Additionally, there is anticipated to be some elaborate floats, as well as amazing entries coming from local high schools.

Families Gather Along the Parade Route

Every year, families gather downtown prior to the parade’s commencement to reserve their spots along the parade route, setting up their chairs while drinking hot chocolate. Keep in mind that the parade is not the only exciting feature of the day – the Brentwood Veterans of Foreign Wars will be hosting their annual Holiday Boutique on First Street at the Veterans Hall, and the Brentwood On Ice skate rink will also be open for business.

It is worth mentioning that there will be many ‘No Parking’ signs along the parade route. As a way of safely facilitating the parade, tow-away zones will be set up and all parking will be prohibited from 3:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. on the parade day at the streets listed below:

  • Fir St. (from Brentwood Blvd. to First St.)
  • First St. (from Garin School to Maple St.)
  • Maple St. (from First St. to Second St.)
  • Second St. (from Maple St. to Oak St.)
  • Birch St. (from Third St. to First St.)
  • Oak St. (from Brentwood Blvd. to Third St. and from Diablo Way to Second St.)
