The Lakeshore Holiday Parade is an annual tradition in Downtown Manitowoc! Held the night before Thanksgiving at 6:30 p.m., the parade is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season with family and friends! The route begins at S 12th Street and Washington Street and travels north on 8th Street to the Rahr-West Art Museum.  

There will once again be a Sensory Sensitive Zone from S 12th Street to S 10th Street where there won't be loud music, sirens, or flashing lights. The purpose of the Sensory Sensitive Zone is to create a more comfortable environment for those individuals who are sensitive to loud noise and flashes of light. 

After the parade, the Lakeshore Holiday Parade hosts a Santa Reception where children can meet with Santa, enjoy treats, and take in the beauty of Christmas in the Mansion at the Rahr-West Art Museum.
