Goleta Holiday Parade on December 3rd

Sponsorship, Volunteer, and Participants Requested to Light Up Old Town Goleta

The Goleta Lions Club is pleased to announce the return of the annual Goleta Holiday Parade to kick off the 2022 Holiday Season in Old Town on Saturday, December 3rd starting at 6:00 p.m. Now organizers of The Santa Cruz Market 5th Annual Goleta Holiday Parade Presented by Fuel Depot are looking for volunteers, event participants and sponsors to ensure the parade is a great success. 

As City of Goleta Mayor Paula Perotte shares, the parade is an important part of Goleta’s community spirit and a special event every year. She said, “The Holiday Parade has become a much-anticipated tradition in Goleta, and this year could be the best one yet. The parade will feature local schools, nonprofits, youth sport teams, friends, families, and other wonderful organizations.”

The parade gives all members of the community the opportunity to come together and celebrate the spirit of the holidays as well as indulge in good old fashioned, hometown fun. No matter your age, the event is sure to put the holiday twinkle in your eye. This year’s route will have participants traveling from Orange Avenue to Kinman Avenue and, while excitement builds for this festive parade, volunteers and sponsors are still needed to ensure its success. 

A variety of sponsorship levels are available, including North Pole Sponsorships ($3000), Regal Stars Diamond Sponsorships ($2500), Reindeer Sponsorships ($1500), or Candy Cane Sponsorships ($1000), in addition to other levels. All sponsorship dollars will fund parade expenses and local youth projects. Volunteers can visit the parade website to sign up and offer help day-of or leading up to the event.

Current sponsors include:

  • North Pole Sponsors: Fuel Depot and Santa Cruz Market
  • Reindeer Sponsors: American Riviera Bank, Mechanics Bank, Rockin’ Double RC Ranch/Robin and Reid Cederlof
  • Candy Cane Sponsors: Community West Bank
