With an abundance of daytime Christmas parades, the Redlands Christmas Parade committee's decision to switch to an evening parade back in 1998 was one that pleased both the crowd and local merchants. Being one of very few, if not the only, evening parade in the Inland Empire, changed the Kiwanis Redlands Christmas Parade from drawing a local crowd to drawing a regional crowd and a large one at that with more than 30,000 in attendance last year!
The generous support from businesses like yours have been an important part of our past success, and are instrumental in making this parade a regional event. We need your help again this year.
The following are sponsorship categories to choose from:
