Parade of Lights

125th Street BID presents the Parade of Lights


The 125th Street BID will be kicking off the holiday season with the Parade of Lights featuring Grand Marshal Dapper Dan. Lighted floats will follow a procession down 125th Street from 5th Avenue to 12th Avenue lead by the NYPD lighting up each streamer along the way until the historic 125th Street is turned in a sea of lights.

You can watch the Parade Of Lights take off from the Community Stage or you can visit one of our instore/outdoor activities locations and wait for the parade to come by.
