The Christmas celebrations in Kanab kick off each year with the Christmas Light Parade. The 2018 Kanab Christmas Light Parade will take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 24. The parade route stretches down Center Street, and locals as well as visitors gather to watch the glowing floats that pass by. This is truly a community event, as anyone can enter a float in the parade. At the end of the parade, revelers can enjoy hot cocoa and donuts before sending off lighted lanterns into the sky with a Christmas wish.
