Mariposa will play host for its 19th year in a row our beloved “Merry Mountain Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting”. The event is a spectacular show of community holiday cheer. The parade and tree lighting will take place Saturday, December 9, 2017.
The parade will start at 5:30 PM and will go until approximately 7:00 PM. Please note that this will close Highway 140 starting at 5:15 PM that day. This parade will be held after dark, so be sure that your parade entries are well lit.
After the parade, everyone will make their way up to the Courthouse where the Lions Club of Mariposa will light our Courthouse Christmas Tree. There will also be hot chocolate and hot dogs while supplies last. Don’t forget to get your picture with Santa & Mrs. Claus while you’re there as well. Sierra Tel will also be giving away free books to children at the Courthouse.
