The West Allis Annual Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday, December 6, 2014 at 4:45 p.m.  The Parade traditionally attracts over 5000 spectators from the local and surrounding communities.  The parade route is located on Greenfield Avenue, beginning at 81st Street and proceeds east to the Farmer's Market on 65th and National Ave. The parade includes  marching bands, mascots, cartoon and storybook characters, elves, creative floats, live animals, great performance groups and… Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus.

We invite you to enjoy the Christmas on the Avenue festivities prior to the Parade.  Christmas on the Avenue begins at 1:30 p.m. and features ice sculptures, children and family activities, pictures with Santa and more.  Festivities will conclude at 3:30 p.m.  Christmas caroling and Christmas tree lighting will begin at 4:00 p.m. at the West Allis City Hall in Centennial Park Plaza located on 76th and Greenfield Avenue.
