In the Christmas Spirit: The Annual Lancaster Christmas Parade

Lancaster Christmas Parade 1959, MOAH Collections

Since the 1950s, the city of Lancaster has been hosting its annual Christmas parade! This picture was taken during the 1959 parade on Lancaster Boulevard and Elm Avenue. The parade, still hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, continues to take place every year alternating between the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale. Hosted this year in Palmdale, the parade will return to Lancaster Blvd. for 2023. Regardless of the hosting City, Santa is present every year.

On Saturday, December 17th, the city will be hosting its Breakfast with Santa event at Sgt. Steve Owen Memorial Park, Stanley Kleiner Activity Center. Participants will enjoy a pancake breakfast, fun arts and craft activities for children, and the opportunity to meet and take pictures with Santa and his elves!

More information about Breakfast with Santa is available by contacting the Parks, Arts, Recreation and Community Services Department at 661-723-6077. Online information can be found at this link:
