The Lighted Tractor Parade is a delight for everyone, urban and rural, young and old. What started as a small parade with only a handful of tractors has evolved into a do-not-miss holiday experience. Around 100 entries decked out in holiday splendor with a minimum of 1,000 Christmas lights each ramble through downtown Centralia! While you’re in Centralia, the merchants and people of the Hub City invite you to “shop small” in our historic downtown, which features a unique selection of boutique stores offering antiques, custom furniture, art, clothing, handcrafted items from local artisans, and so much more. This year is also the second-ever Christmas Market featuring unique, one-of-a-kind handcrafted and up-cycled holiday gifts and décor. Centralia is conveniently located midway between Seattle and Portland. It’s a scenic 90-minute drive, or leave your car at home and hop aboard the Amtrak Cascades to the Centralia stop. The train station is in the center of downtown and walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and the Lighted Tractor Parade. For more information, visit the Centralia Downtown Association website.
The parade starts at 6p but make sure to get there early as the streets will be packed!
