APS Electric Light Parade
"Wild West Holiday Roundup"
Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013 at 7 p.m.
A special thanks to all of the community partners that made the 2013 APS Electric Light Parade a stunning success. If you weren't able to make it out to the parade, you can catch the full video broadcast of this year's parade thanks to our media partner ABC15.
The APS Electric Light Parade, now in its 27th year, delights tens of thousands of specatators each year. The links on this page will help you prepare for and plan your trip to the parade.
Crowds are typically very large near the parade start on Central Avenue at Montebello. To find lighter crowds along the two-mile parade route, try Camelback road between 7th Street and Camelback and 7th Street south of Camelback.
Want a less crowded way to enjoy the lighted floats of the parade? Join the parade entry judging celebration on Dec. 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. at North Phoenix Baptist Church, Central & Bethany Homes Road. Free parking is available in the south church parking lot. Judges use this time to pick award winners for large floats and it's a great way to see the lighted floats up close without the crowds of parade night. Students from ASU also will be on hand at this event with free kids' activities and the little ones can even visit with Santa.
