The 7th Annual Manitou Christmas Parade celebrates the holiday season for all of us. There will be no better way to experience this than spending it in Manitou Springs! Come out and shop, stay for dinner and enjoy the parade!
Toys 4 Tots
The Manitou Springs Christmas Parade will ask everyone to get into the spirit of giving by bringing a new, unwrapped toy to the parade. Volunteers from Toys for Tots will be marching in the parade and will collect the toys from parade goers.
Manitou Springs goes all out in decorating for the Holiday Season! Come wander the streets under the colorful lights, and listen to the Carolers as they wander the Avenue.
The Parade is December 9th, this year and is promoting Manitou as a Holiday destination. For over a century people have come to spend their winters in the safety of the valleys surrounding Pikes Peak and Mount Manitou, from Mountain Utes who came to Manitou to drink the spring waters to those who suffered from Tuberculosis seeking clean, dry, mountain air; and then the numerous tourism pioneers who built the Manitou Incline, The Cog Railway, the Cliff House, and the many fine attractions that bring thousands of guests to Manitou each year.
This year Manitou Springs will be the host to the regions Christmas Community Event: “The Manitou Christmas Parade.” Our Theme is “Light up the night!” So bring your brightest light-up ugly sweater and get ready to sing some Christmas Carols at The Manitou Christmas Parade, a night time spectacular on Saturday evening beginning at 6:00 pm!
