31st Annual Hometowne Christmas Celebration

Join us in celebrating "The Twelve Nevada Days of Christmas"! The Sparks Hometowne Christmas Parade will be putting a “Battle Born” twist on the classic Christmas carol. We're intertwining our love for Nevada with our contagious Christmas spirit! 


On the Twelfth day of Christmas, the Silver State gave to me:

Twelve Battle Born flags flying
Eleven Fremont Cannons blasting
Ten feet of snow a-falling
Nine neon lights a-lighting
Eight trains a-railing 
Seven lakes a-swimming
Six zephyrs blowing
Five golden nuggets
Four calling blue birds
Three picon punches
Two tumbleweeds
And a chukar in a pinyon pine tree

The Hometowne Christmas Parade is a Northern Nevada tradition as deep rooted as the spirit of the season itself. The parade will feature marching bands playing the holiday tunes we all know and love, Christmas costumes, adorable animals, and festive floats all representing The Twelve Nevada Days of Christmas.

Age recommendation: The Whole Family!

Cost: pitch in for decorations and candy canes to distribute

Maximum group size? 110

Registration deadline: Midnight, November 20 , 2017


Saturday, December 2, 2017 11:00A-3:00P

Come down early to get a good spot, or avoid the parking and winter weather by carpooling, taking the bus, or rideshares, just get there! The parade begins at 1:00PM but the festivities begin at 11:00AM. Make sure to get a picture with Santa, and check out the Community Faire to learn how you can celebrate “The Twelve Nevada Days of Christmas” through our local non-profits

Please change your RSVP when your plans change, even up to the day of the activity, so the entire group doesn't delay, waiting for someone to arrive who will never come. :-( Email to change or cancel your reservation.

Photo policy: Please do not post photos/videos of other people's children (in which the child is recognizable or more than 50% of the child's face is visible) to social media without the permission of that child's parent. Never post and then tag the parent, without prior permission. This is a matter of courtesy, as well as a matter of safety, and possibly law, i.e. if the child is in foster care. Please be respectful of the privacy wishes of others in the group. Thank you.
