Community gathers for Light Your Way Christmas parade in Terre Haute


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The second evening of Terre Haute’s Miracle on 7th Street event Saturday centered around a Light Your Way Christmas Parade.

The parade, which traveled down Wabash Ave. downtown, included several floats from community organizations and businesses.

The first block of the parade featured a sensory sensitive zone where no music was played and non-edible goodies were handed out. The remainder of the parade featured holiday music and candies tossed out into the crowds.

Organizers and participants say the parade is a great way to bring the community together to kick off the Christmas month.

“It’s such a great community gathering, as big as this gets every year, the crowd is unimaginable; something you usually don’t see in Terre Haute,” said Vigo Co. Councilman Chris Switzer.

Miracle on 7th Street wrapped up at 9 p.m. Saturday.
