Seasonal celebrations, interrupted by COVID-19 in 2020, set to return to Napa Valley | Local News
The Calistoga Chamber of Commerce said plans are underway to hold the Illuminated Tractor Parade this year on Saturday, December 4.
Bruce Kyse, executive director of the chamber, added the caveat: “Nothing is certain these days, of course. But we are making progress in planning to organize the parade.
The city center will also be embellished with more Christmas lights this year, as well as 50 illuminated trees, 30 more than usual.
Celebrate! Napa Valley is also planning to bring the Christmas Fair back, to a location to be announced.
The illuminated tractor parade has been a popular holiday tradition since 1995, drawing thousands of spectators to line Lincoln Avenue in the dark, at five depths, to watch at least 60 tractors, police motorcycles and party floats built by local organizations. .
The parade was canceled last year due to social distancing restrictions during the pandemic, in what would have been its 25th year, so this year’s procession will be celebrated as the parade’s silver anniversary, a Kyse said. The living trees will also be donated to families affected by forest fires in recent years.
