Lighted Holiday Parade and Chili Cook-Off

BASE Staff and Kids will participate in the parade and the chili cook-off!

Join us downtown Fort Atkinson, starting at Milwaukee Avenue and ending on Madison Avenue at Robert Street for the 24th anniversary of Fort Atkinson's downtown Lighted Holiday Parade. Featuring music, dancing and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. In the spirit of giving, we encourage parade attendees to bring a can of non-perishable food to the parade to support St. Paul's Lutheran School with their annual food drive for the Fort Atkinson Food Pantry.

Immediately following the parade, stop by the Municipal Building (30 N. Water Street) for the 20th Annual United Way Chili Cook-Off where you can vote for your favorite chili and have your photo taken with Santa.

Show your community spirit on Saturday, November 9 at the Fort Atkinson Holiday Parade to kick off the holiday season!
