Welcome Santa and the Christmas Season to town at the Old Fashioned Christmas parade on Friday, November 23, 2018, at 6:30 pm. The Parade is sponsored by the Village of Antioch. The parade takes place on Main Street between Park Avenue and Depot Street traveling North. Santa joins the community and participates in the parade as the last float which leads everyone to the community Christmas Tree.
Immediately following the Christmas Parade we will hold the Tree Lighting Ceremony in Front of Village Hall. At this ceremony, we are joined by the Antioch Community High School Chorus for some old-fashioned caroling and a visit from Santa himself who comes to spread holiday cheer. The Antioch Fire Department hands out free cookies and hot chocolate. Community officials welcome everyone and then the countdown to the lighting of the official community tree happens. Santa then returns to his enchanted village where you can bring your kids to visit and take pictures.
We do accept homemade and store-bought ornaments for the community Christmas tree which should be turned into the VIllage Hall the Monday prior to the lighting ceremony. For any further information please contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 847-395-2160 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
