This year, you'll load up the car and come downtown to see floats, lighted displays, performers, and more as you cruise through the Main Street parade route.
Spectators will slowly pass through several blocks of downtown Dayton streets in their own vehicles, getting an up-close view of the lineup of festive floats, holiday entertainment, and hundreds of thousands of lights that will be on display along downtown Dayton’s Main Street.
Space is limited. | The Drive-Thru is FREE to attend, but you must register your vehicle for an arrival time window.
1 registration per vehicle | Whether you're driving through by yourself or packing the whole family into a big van, you'll just need 1 parade registration for your vehicle. Please register additional vehicles separately.
Drive-thru only | For the health and safety of participants and performers, walking the parade route will not be permitted.
No vehicle? No problem. | Greater Dayton RTA will be offering limited capacity bus rides through the parade. More details to come. No registration is needed for this option - first come, first served only.
