KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Kalamazoo’s annual holiday parade will return this November.

The 59-year-old Maple Hill Kalamazoo Holiday Parade will be hit the streets Nov. 20 after being canceled last year due to COVID-19. The time has not yet been set.

The Kalamazoo Downtown Partnership will again be partnering with Maple Hill Auto Group, which will be planning and managing the parade.

The parade will kickoff downtown Kalamazoo’s busy holiday season. This year’s festivities will include the small business Saturday weekend from Nov. 26-28, downtown dollars, Santa’s workshop, the holly jolly trolley and a window decorating contest, the city said.

Correction: A previous version of this story said the the city of Kalamazoo is putting the parade on instead of the Kalamazoo Downtown Partnership. We regret the error.
