Redlands’ annual Christmas parade returned to downtown Redlands on Dec. 4 after two years. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Christmas parade was restructured as a drive-thru parade, which took place in the Redlands Sports Park parking lot. In 2019, the parade was cancelled twice due to rain.

This year’s theme was “An Unforgettable Christmas.”

The parade consisted of decorated floats and vehicles, musical performances, appearances from community groups and more.

The parade is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Redlands.
