BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Visit Bellows Falls as we #LightUpBF Saturday, Dec. 11 at 5 p.m. We will turn on the snowflake lights in the square and the Christmas tree at the Brown-Fuller Memorial Park to start the Bellows Falls Parade of Lights. Come watch almost 30 vehicles decked out with lights and music parade through Bellows Falls. The route begins on Henry Street and will continue north through the Square to end on Williams Street.
The Bellows Falls Parade of Lights is an outdoor event. There is ample room on all sidewalks from Henry to Williams streets for people to safely spread out and watch the parade. There are many places to park your car along the route to watch from inside your vehicle.
Following Vermont guidelines for Covid-19 protocols, www.healthvermont.gov, we ask that visitors stay outdoors when you can, keep groups small, when indoors wear a mask, avoid crowded spaces, and consider getting tested before and after an event.
The Bellows Falls Parade of Lights is an all-weather event. We suggest you dress for cold weather and keep your family safely on the sidewalks and out of the streets, as nothing will be thrown from any vehicle in the parade. The Parade of Lights is a nighttime event; consider carrying flashlights or headlamps for your safety.
