The fireworks are cancelled Saturday due to high winds and safety concerns. Instead, they will happen Sunday, November 20, 2022, at 6:00 pm. All other components of the Fantasy of Lights program, including the Santa Claus Parade and Opening Ceremonies, continue as planned. Opening Ceremonies are moving inside the Pavilion to protect against the cold and wind.

Original Story:

Christmas comes to Kingsville Saturday.

The evening starts with the 19th Annual Santa Claus Parade at 5:00pm. The Parade Route runs from Main Street East to Division Street South to Park Street. Jasperson Drive will close at 3:00pm to allow for parade staging, and sections of Main Street East, Division Street South and Park Street will close at 4:30pm. All connecting side streets along the route will be barricaded.

That Kingsville Podcast will be on the balcony of the Grove Hotel, announcing each entry as it passes. Many groups and organizations are accepting donations as they walk the parade line.

Kingsville Fire & Rescue is collecting new, unwrapped toys or monetary donations for the annual Sparky Toy Drive. Rotary Club of Kingsville Southshore will collect for the Food Bank and Student Nutrition Program. Items of greatest need are cereals, peanut butter, and other breakfast items.

“We’re proud to hold a parade that is distinctly ‘Kingsville,’” said Fantasy of Lights Chair and Councillor Tony Gaffan. “We want to thank everyone; our staff, volunteers, community groups, and sponsors for helping to make this a magical night for kids of all ages in our community.”

After the parade, everyone is invited to meet at Lakeside Park for the 30th Annual Fantasy of Lights Opening Ceremonies. Enjoy hot chocolate, Christmas caroling, and the official flick of the switch to light the displays. Fireworks will follow.

The Fantasy of Lights Festival continues until January 4th, 2023.
