Registration for the 2021 Parade of Lights Sponsored by Prosperity Bank Closes Early

Seeing unprecedented numbers of registration for this annual Odessa Christmas tradition, Downtown Odessa, Inc. has made the difficult choice to close registration, effective immediately.

Downtown Odessa, Inc. is thrilled by the level of participation from the public and know that the judges are very excited to see all of the creativity that the community will have on display this Saturday. The Parade of Lights begins at 6:30pm on December 4th at the corner of 23rd St. and Andrews Highway. 

In addition to the parade, the following events will be going on in conjunction on December 4th: The Winterfest Market (Texas Ave. from 3rd St to 5th St.) from 1pm-9pm featuring food trucks, over 50 vendors, a DJ, and children’s activities; Odessa YMCA’s Jingle Bell Jog beginning at 6pm at 23rd and Andrews Highway; and a Holiday Mini Pop shopping event hosted by Pop Spot inside of Dee’s Bistro (622 N. Lee Ave.) from 2pm-10pm.
