The 41st Annual Electric Christmas Parade at Lake Geneva

christmas-paradeIt doesn’t have to be summer for your family to come out and enjoy beautiful Lake Geneva! Located just north of the Wisconsin-Illinois state line near our Bailey Estates community, the holiday fun never ends near your McHenry home at the 41st Annual Electric Christmas Parade. On Saturday, December 3, the community will come together to enjoy the nighttime parade in downtown Lake Geneva. Come join in on the float competitions, live music, and Christmas cheer!

This year’s parade will begin at 5 p.m. at Williams and Marshall Streets and travel south on Broad Street, west on Main Street, and end on Cook Street. Nearby schools and businesses will participate in this holiday tradition, making it simple for the entire community to become involved. The theme for the parade is “Celebrate Your Inner Elf,” meaning focus on the positive things in life and express excitement for the holiday season. Inner Elf behavior encourages people to smile, be yourself, give compliments freely, and encourage others to be cheerful.
