PARADE STARTS AT 5 PM SHARP!
THE PARADE WILL BEGIN ON SALISBURY STREET, TURN ONTO MAIN STREET AND END ON SCHOOL STREET.
Signs will be posted on Main Street notifying drivers that all Main Street parking spots must be vacant before the parade begins or vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense. Parking will be limited, so we ask that folks carpool.
Fire trucks and floats should begin lining up on Summer Street at 3:30 pm and animal units will begin lining up on Salisbury Street near Day’s Funeral Home at 4:15 pm. Those with animal units may wish to park their trailer at the Recreational Field parking lot on School Street or near Day’s Funeral Home on Salisbury Street.
All entries need to be lined up by and completely decorated by 4:45 pm. At 5 pm SHARP a member of the event staff will alert the first entry to start moving. Entries will turn left onto Salisbury Street, left again onto Main Street, left onto School Street and circle around onto Franklin or Summer Street.

We encourage attendees to carpool and plan to arrive in Randolph no later than 4:15 pm.
This will allow you time to park, walk to Main Street, and enjoy the festivities before the parade begins. In addition, traffic will begin getting detoured around 4:45 pm. The Winter Lights Parade is smaller in comparison to the annual Fourth of July parade so if you arrive later than that you may miss the parade.
Two days before the parade, notices will be posted through sections of downtown Randolph alerting the public that parking will not available on Main street and Salisbury Street from 3:30 - 6:00 pm on Saturday, December 7th.
The map shown here marks parking lots that will be available to Winter Lights attendees throughout the day and night.
