The Downtown Livermore Holiday Sights & Sounds Parade is a festive holiday event inviting all to attend. If you love local marching bands, music, light displays, and Santa Claus, you're in the right place! The hour long parade is a sizeable endeavor that entertains locals and visitors to Tri-Valley. One of the guidelines of this parade that maintains its quality is that walking entries aren't accepted, thus providing many floats and vehicles lit and decorated. All entries must be lighted or have holiday music incorporated into the design, according to parade planners, Livermore Downtown Inc.
Parade on First Street at 6pm! Featuring local Businesses, Marching Bands, Music, Lighting Displays & Santa Claus! We are excited to honor Past Mayor John Marchand for his years of service on City Council and as Mayor and in thanks for his dedication to Downtown Health and Vitality. Calling all Floats, Marching Bands and cool vehicles! Application is still available to apply! We are seeking fun entries showcasing the sights and sounds of the holidays! Be creative and be FUN!!! Still time to join us!! Click Here

Livermore enjoys its holiday celebrations, and the downtown region is the hub of activity for such pleasures. In addition to the tree lighting, another annual festivity is the Livermore Valley Dance Theatre Nutcracker Ballet. Before Christmas comes around, be sure to check out the Halloween events held downtown. Summer is filled with blossoms in the air, and the sweet sounds from an outdoor stage where Shakespeare and Opera are performed under the stars.
