Event Details


“The Tree Lighting will be held virtually (Facebook LIVE ) on Tuesday, December 1st at 5:30 p.m. The MHS band will play a few Christmas songs and we will light the downtown tree.

The Christmas Parade will now take place on Wednesday, December 2nd at 6:30 p.m., but we are moving it to the City Park! This will give citizens more space to properly social distance and will even give you the opportunity to watch from your vehicle if you choose to do so. We highly recommend that you wear masks and only gather with members of your household. Participants that have entered the parade will be staged on Industrial Drive (entering from E. Van Hook Street) beginning at 5:30 p.m. Citizens who are just coming to watch the parade will be able to come down Ellington Drive into the Park, and you can park in the soccer field, baseball field or softball field parking lots. Please DO NOT parallel park along the Park roads. You may stand there to watch the parade, but be sure your vehicle is in one of the bigger parking lots. Ellington Drive near the railroad tracks will be CLOSED to through traffic at 6:15 p.m. – so be sure you have arrived before that time. The City of Milan is still recommending that Parade Participates do not throw candy this year.”
