There is no way we could produce the Grand Illumination Parade without the help of our dedicated volunteers. Many of our volunteers have been helping with the parade for decades, so it must be fun! Check out the volunteer position descriptions here, and then register to volunteer.
The Grand Illumination Parade takes place every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, bringing thousands of spectators out to the streets of Downtown Norfolk to take in the beauty, magic, and electric holiday spirit to kick off the season. The theme of this year's parade is "Holiday Magic," so get ready to see all the magic of the holidays come alive in the streets of Downtown Norfolk.
