Celebrate the magic of the holiday season at the Annual ‘Winter Snow Fun’ Holiday Parade and Annual City of Marquette Tree Lighting. Bundle up with friends and family as illuminated floats, tinsel-strewn trucks and colorful carolers transform Third Street into a magical scene from the North Pole.

SO, please continue on, parking your float on the street or in the First Lutheran Church Parking lot. Make it a full day of holiday festivities.
