Bend Christmas Parade

Bend Christmas ParadeI’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the Bend Christmas Parade, one of my favorite Bend traditions and holiday events I look forward to. And no, it’s not too early to mention it—it’s less than a month away already!

Saturday, December 8 is the day, and noon is when it starts. Downtown Bend, of course. It starts at Harmon and Newport and ends at Galveston and Harmon (map).

Prepare for cold if you go. And you might consider taking something to sit on, as well—collapsible chairs or something; sitting on frozen concrete makes it even colder.
