Beaver Dam Holiday Parade Returns Saturday

(Beaver Dam) Organizers with the annual Beaver Dam Holiday Parade say there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy the festivities this year. The day gets underway Saturday morning with the Grinch Breakfast at Bayside Supper Club from 9am to 11. Around the Town Adventures kicks off at 10am where families can stop at various locations around Beaver Dam for a treat or an adventure. Also at 10, the Cocoa Walk will allow downtown visitors a chance to warm up from the cold with a hot beverage. Beaver Dam Chamber of Commerce President Tracy Propst says hot cocoa, cookies, and truffles will be available at a variety of different businesses including Active Outfitters, Art on the Town, Chippy’s Popcorn Creations, McKinstry’s Home Furnishings, Riverfront Wine Bar, and Twister Sisters, among many others.

At 3pm, kids – and adults – can enjoy a pre-parade visit with Santa Claus at the BMO Harris Bank. Propst also encourages those touring the downtown decorations to stop by the Chamber on 127 South Spring Street for an open house. Warm drinks and treats will be offered and there will be a Christmas Tree lighting before the parade starts. The open house starts at 4:30pm.

An hour later, at 5:30pm, the annual Holiday Parade begins. This year’s theme is “Songs of the Season.” The parade route will be from the 200-through-100 blocks of Front Street to 100-through-300 blocks of South Spring Street.
