Getting into the holiday spirit will be easy when you kick off the season with this special Holiday Lights Parade and our Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. We hope you come out to support your local Salvation Army, area businesses and organizations, and most importantly your neighbors in need. The evening will kick off with a lights parade from Prairie View Elementary to the Dardenne Athletic Fields. Following the parade will be the annual Tree Lighting and dedications from the Dardenne Prairie Mayor and officials of the Salvation Army. After the lighting, we hope you stay for music performed by area schools, pictures with Santa and his reindeer( real, live reindeer!!) , crafts, and other holiday activities. We will be collecting toys for the Salvation Army Toy Town as well as monetary donations for the Salvation Army at this event. Please bring a new unwrapped toy to donate, you can vote for your favorite parade float by donating your toy at your favorite float’s collection bin.
