Kick off your holiday season at one of the largest parades in the Midwest, The Blade Holiday Parade in downtown Toledo.

Sponsored by Taylor Family Automotive and the Distinguished Clown Corps, the parade will step off at 10 a.m. on Nov. 11, 2017. To mark its 30 th year, the parade will be filled with entertainment you will not find anywhere else. There will be plenty of holiday cheer to go around with performances by Bo Steele of The Band Steele. A World War II Avenger and B-28 will fly over the parade route as part of a salute to all area veterans.

This year’s parade Grand Marshal is Alden Hirschfeld, captain of the Toledo Walleye. Hirschfeld is in his fifth season with his hometown team. Hirschfeld is a Sylvania native, who graduated from Northview High School. The parade will have more than 80 units including color guards, giant balloons, clowns, marching bands, and dance teams. And don’t forget jolly ‘ole St. Nick himself. Santa Claus will go from the parade to Imagination Station to hear wishes from area boys and girls.

The parade route starts on Summit Street, travels down Jackson Street and Huron Avenue, and ends on Washington Street.
