Rudolph's Holly Jolly™ Christmas Light Parade

Say hello to the most famous reindeer of all during Rudolph’s Holly Jolly™ Christmas Light Parade!

As grand marshal, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ leads this joyous musical procession of nine lighted floats and dozens costumed characters through the streets of Silver Dollar City. The parade includes Rudolph’s friend Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster™, 14-foot moose characters, 12-foot tall elves and 10-foot candy canes, plus penguins and a troupe of marching wooden soldiers.

The floats, illuminated with 200,000 ultra-bright LED lights, feature whimsical animated scenes, including huge drumming bears and cymbal-playing penguins. They were designed exclusively for Silver Dollar City, meaning this is a one-of-a-kind experience you won't find anywhere else this Christmas season!

Weather permitting, Rudolph’s Holly Jolly™ Christmas Light Parade occurs at least twice a night during An Old Time Christmas®.

The parade starts in The Grand Exposition and travels up Valley Road to the Square, where it passes our 8-story special effects tree and turns down Hugo's Hill Street. Citizens will be happy to give you directions to great viewing spots — just ask!
