Parade of Lights - Beautifully lit and fantastically festive, the Festival of Lights–Parade of Lights starts at 5:30 pm from the corner of Sudderth/Mechem, through Midtown, down to the Chamber of Commerce. The Ruidoso Valley Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Toys for Tots. We are encouraging everyone to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Parade of Lights. During the parade Toys for Tots will have a float and will be collecting toys. Marines will be walking along the float picking up the toys that are brought to the parade. This year lets all help make sure every child has a Christmas by bringing a toy to the parade to donate.
Parade After Party - Immediately following the parade, the Ruidoso Valley Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a party in Wingfield Park. There will be Food and Drinks. Free to attend! Santa will be there! Come take a picture with Santa Claus.
