Thank you for helping to make the Christmas season bright! We welcome Christmas-themed floats, bands, vehicles and horses.

  • Registration is required and FREE!
  • Deadline to register: Friday, December 2 at NOON. The registration form is at the bottom of this page.
  • The parade line-up will begin at 4 p.m. on Spring (Spring Park area) and Mulberry Streets. The parade will start at 6 p.m. It will travel north on Spring, west on Arch, north on Spruce, east on Race and north on Davis, ending at Berryhill Park.
  • All vehicles and float entries must have Christmas lights AND play Christmas music.
  • NO ENTRIES CAN HAVE A PERSON DRESSED AS SANTA. This is to prevent any confusion for children. The City of Searcy/Holiday of Lights committee has one official Santa that rides in a fire truck at the end of the parade.
  • No candy or other items may be thrown from vehicles or floats. It will be dark, and children may not be seen by drivers if they run into the street for candy. People walking may hand out candy and other items, but they cannot be thrown from floats or vehicles.
  • Loud music and bass are not allowed.
  • While we welcome local politicians and political candidates in our parade, we ask that no national political signs or political statements be displayed. The Christmas Parade is a time for festive, seasonal decorations.
  • All horses in the parade must be Coggins tested.
  • Parade officials reserve the right to remove any entry from the parade line-up that is deemed inappropriate for this family-friendly event or could potentially put participants or spectators in physical danger.
  • In the event of inclement weather and/or street conditions are deemed unsafe, the parade will be postponed. A determination will be made by 3 p.m. on December 3. Please follow the Searcy Holiday of Lights Facebook page for announcements.
