Holiday Event flyer-websize

Join the city of Apache Junction Parks and Recreation on Saturday, Dec. 5 for a new take on our annual free Light Parade! We are switching up our annual event this year but keeping our holiday spirit and hosting a Reverse Light Parade! The parade will take place on North Apache Trail in front of Flatiron Community Park from 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

This will be a drive-thru experience for families with all of the floats staged on both sides of the road in the adjacent street parking. As always, Santa Claus will be in the firetruck waving to all the good girls and boys of the community! All traffic will be traveling southbound on North Apache Trail from Idaho Road. The route will conclude at Apache Trail where you can view the Christmas tree at the Focal Point. After you exit onto Apache Trail, you will be able to drive around town to check out all of the decorated businesses that are participating in "The Jingle in the Junction" event hosted by the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce. Maps of the participating businesses will be available prior to Dec. 5. 

Individuals, businesses, non-profit agencies and groups are welcome to enter their floats. Registration is required in order to participate. For more information on entering your float, please contact Larry Binion at

For more information on this program or other programs and services, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 480-983-2181 or visit
