Bring the entire family to the Holiday Festival of Lights, the largest lighted Holiday parade in Southeast SD!

This Yankton tradition attracts more than 60 lighted floats and marching bands. Look for Santa Claus on the very first float! Come early to shop, join in fun activities and to claim your spot along 3rd Street to watch this exciting holiday event!
After the parade, take a short walk to the Meridian Bridge for the official lighting of Yankton’s Christmas Tree, carolers, hot drinks, and fireworks!

The Yankton Holiday Festival of Lights is FREE to attend! No tickets required to view the parade or tree lighting ceremony!
