ALAMOSA — The 12th annual Alamosa Christmas Light Parade is just around the corner.

The parade will kick off at 6 p.m. on Dec. 17 on Main Street in Alamosa.

Floats covered in Christmas Lights will travel down Main Street and turn South on Alamosa Ave. 

The Alamosa Christmas Light Parade is put on each year by The Alamosa Round-UP Rodeo Committee. With the help of sponsors, the parade is able to give Christmas stockings, caps and candy cane socks to the hospital, so that each new born baby in December gets to be sent home in a super fun way.

“It’s just a small way for us to say, we love you, and you are not forgotten this Christmas,” said parade organizer Dawn Honeycutt. 

This year’s Christmas Light Parade sponsors include RG Bank, Friday Health Plans, 1st Southwest Bank, North River Green House, SLV Federal Bank, Asphalt Constructors, US Tractor and Harvest, Blessed Brews-Roots, SLVREC/Ciello, Hogues Glass, The Valley Courier, SLV Health, Viaero Wireless, Monte Vista Coop, Valley-Wide Health Systems, Colorado Potato Administration, Sweet Optics, Schulz Realty and Honeycutt Rodeo. Without the help of these sponsors, this parade would not be possible.

Floats range from semi-trucks, tractors, snow plows, horses and Harleys will hit the streets.  Parking will be prohibited on Main Street to leave room for the floats, so dress warm and enjoy a night out with family in Alamosa.

The parade judges are local enforcement officers.

The Alamosa Christmas Light Parade is in its 12th year. Each year the parade grows and the floats get brighter and brighter.
