The 42nd Electric Christmas Parade is filled with imagination, joy, and amazing floats that will glide through Broad and Main Street in downtown Lake Geneva. This year’s Electric Parade theme is “Christmas in the Stars” and will be held on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. It will be a joyous event bringing friends, family and residents of all ages together in a rousing display of community to celebrate the holidays.

The theme “Christmas in the Stars” means promoting your inner Jedi and looking for the positive things in life and to remember that the force will always be with you. Your inner Jedi is strong, it encourages people to smile, and to be themselves.
