Encinitas Holiday Parade set for Dec. 3
The Encinitas Holiday Parade, presented by Ting Internet, will hit Coast Highway 101 on Saturday, Dec. 3. The parade begins at 5:30 p.m., moving south on 101 from D Street to J Street. Before the parade kicks off there will be a tree lighting ceremony at 5 p.m at the Lumberyard Shops courtyard (between H and I Street on the east side of 101). Santa Claus is expected to make a brief appearance.
This year’s parade theme is “Classic Encinitas” and entries will offer their take on what Encinitas means to them, from cars to music to Encinitas legends and lore. Warren Raps will serve as the 2022 Parade Grand Marshal.
Free shuttles will be offered for the parade. Shuttle buses will be available at Ecke Sports Park/YMCA and San Dieguito Academy High School (parking lot at corner of Melba Road/Nardo Road). Both shuttles start running at 4 p.m. with last pick-ups from the parade stop until 8:30 p.m.
Applications are available to enter a group in the parade so gather your group and get signed up. Find out more at bit.ly/3G9zQGO
