Sutter Creek comes alive in twinkling lights on December 15th, as everything from cars, mail trucks, school buses, horses, dogs, people, marching bands, baton twirlers, and more, are decorated in twinkling lights and parade down Historic Sutter Creeks' Main Street beneath the moonlight on a crisp December evening. Everyone is invited to come down and watch this magical parade. Children and adults enjoy this evening of old fashioned hometown fun.

Main Street itself is beautiful to behold. All of the wonderful, historic Gold Rush buildings are decked out in Holiday splendor, with twinkling lights and wreathes. Bubbles float down from the American Exchange Hotels' balcony and give the feeling of snowflakes. Vintage lighted Garland sways high above over Main Street and the classic Store front windows are decorated and displaying unique gift ideas.
The parade starts at 6:30 on the North end of Sutter Creek and will last about an hour and a half. There is plenty of parking downtown, just don't park on Main Street, so everyone will have a good view of this wonderful parade! Remember to dress warm. Come early and enjoy the old town Holiday charm of Sutter Creek.
