Holiday Light Parades to Brighten Olympia’s December 2022 Nights

Winter Holiday Light Parades are back for the third straight year. The Olympia Police Department (OPD) will partner with other City departments to brighten Olympia’s December nights during a series of parades featuring City vehicles and holiday lights.

After initiating the parade idea in 2020 to help Olympia celebrate its community and enjoy the winter season in a COVID-19-safe way, OPD is excited to bring back the popular events. Three parade routes, including in the southeastern part of the city on December 1, West Olympia on December 7, and the northeastern section and the South Capitol Neighborhood on December 13, will bring some additional light to the darker winter season. Each parade will begin at 6 p.m.; the one in West Olympia will last for about 90 minutes while the other two will conclude after about an hour.

In addition to the Olympia Police Department motorcycles, Corrections van and Crisis Response Unit (CRU) vans, vehicles from the City’s Parks, Arts & Recreation Department, Fire Department, Waste ReSources Department, Transportation Department, and Community Planning & Development Building Division are scheduled to participate. This year’s parades will include new and improved light displays.
