Home Depot  Santas lil’ Helpers crafting Workshop: Join our hands-on workshop just off 5th and Idaho Street. You and your child can build a cute  Holiday Tree Picture frame or design a ginger bread house. All kids get to keep their project and a Workshop Apron, and a commemorative pin while supplies last.

Ice sculptures: Ice is Nice will return with another ice sculpture. Visitors can watch as the sculpture takes shape.
Cocoa Cottage: The DBA Cocoa Cottage,  will be selling naughty and nice hot cocoa at its booth throughout the day. “Naughty” cocoa, for those 21 years and older, is $5 each. “Nice” cocoa is the traditional hot chocolate for $2. A special collectors cup will be available for $10.

Don’t forget to visit the stores and restaurants in Downtown Elko. Many will be offering specials and discounts during the event.

Bring the family down for some fun, food, and festivities and help support your local merchants. The festival is free to attend, but individual booths may charge for activities or food.

Parade Tips
Here are some tips to make watching the Parade of Lights a bit more enjoyable:

– Dress warmly. Temperatures can range from a mild 50 degrees F down to a chilly 20 degrees. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and get cozy for a spectacular show!
– There will be food booths in the downtown business district offering hot drinks and snack items to help keep you warm!
– If you have small children you’ll want to plan on being downtown about one hour before the parade starts for pre-parade entertainment.

The parade lasts about 45 minutes and will not be canceled unless there are extreme weather conditions. Check this site for any cancellation notice.
