The 2011 Missoula Parade of Lights

One of Missoula’s favorite holiday traditions is the annual Parade of Lights put on by the Missoula Downtown Association. That’s probably because it’s way more than just a parade!

Festivities are held on Dec. 3. The day kicks off at 11 a.m. with a special holiday story reading for kids at the Missoula Public Library and doesn’t stop until the Christmas tree is lit at the end of North Higgins Avenue thatevening.

Here’s what’s on tap for this year’s festivities:
