The Harper Creek Optimist Club is pleased to announce the 2022 Battle Creek Christmas parade will be back and held in downtown Battle Creek, Michigan on Saturday, November 19, 2022.


The 2022 Parade Theme is LIGHTS ON BATTLE CREEK. Floats are encouraged to get in the spirit of the evening parade, and decorate their entry creatively with Christmas lighting for the community to enjoy. We encourage local groups to begin planning now!


The Parade Planning Committee continues to monitor all local, state and federal guidelines in regards to the on-going COVID-19 Pandemic, and will make adjustments accordingly throughout the planning process. We encourage all groups interested in participating to ensure they are following the CDC’s recommended safety measures in place at the time of float planning and parade participation including, but not limited to, distancing, mask usage and hand hygiene.


Registration for the parade is NOW OPEN via a link under the "Registration" tab of the website. Please note: ALL ASPECTS of parade registration and coordination is done electronically. There are no paper applications.
