Christmas Parade in Mid-Nov?

Anyone know when exactly the Christmas parade starts? We are going Nov 17-20 and I REALLY am hoping to see it, we have not seen ONE parade on main street in our last 4 visits...

Thanks!

Last year it was on November 5th and that was our first and only day at DL. They close off a lot to accommodate it, so I wouldn't try to go their during the CP again, tbh, but if you're really jazzed on seeing it, I *think* it's normally the first weekend in November. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I think that may have been the day they taped it for television? It usually starts a week or so later than that. OP should be good with their 11/17-11/20 dates.

Holiday Time at DL officially starts Nov. 12th, so the Christmas parade should be running during the OP's visit.

Purplegal -

I answered your question in the Christmas/Holiday Superthread this morning, in this post. I explained in detail what happens with the parade schedule, and I also addressed your tour question as well!
