Downtown Plattsburgh: Holiday Parade & Tree Lighting

December 4, 2021


Plattsburgh, NY

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superheroes Celebrate the Holidays! This year the City of Plattsburgh is pleased to announce the 2021 Holiday Parade Theme: Superheroes Celebrating the Holidays. Whether it's Batman building a snowman, or Wonder Woman walking in a Winter's Wonderland, we are expecting to see fantastical mashups of our favorite superheroes doing festive things on Saturday December 4th, 2021 at 5:30PM.

Over the past 18 months, our community has come together in the face of adversity and one local super hero that always rises to the challenge is local journalist and Mountain Lake PBS anchor, Thom Hallock. We are honored to announce that Thom will be serving as this year's parade Grand Marshal and very own hometown superhero.

The pre-parade “warm-up” show will begin at 5:00PM and include a dance performance by Nancy Langlois School of Dance and a family-friendly hip-hop set performed by local group, Antwon Levee & Dust. The parade will begin at 5:30 pm. Immediately following the Parade will be a performance by Center Stage Dance Studio and local acapella group, Fermata Nowhere. The tree lighting will be held at the intersection of Margaret and Brinkerhoff Streets, on the lawn of The Strand Center for the Arts, followed by a showing of Home Alone in the newly completed Theatre at 25 Brinkerhoff. These events, presented by The Strand Center for the Arts, are free and open to the public. Masks are required within the theatre.

Space is limited, but floats and walking groups are encouraged to sign up until the deadline of 4:00PM Monday November 29th. Local businesses, schools and all community groups can sign up by completing the online form which can be found at or on the City’s Facebook page.
