LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — You're invited to join in the holiday spirit in downtown Lafayette this weekend.

Saturday, December 7, is the annual Very Merry Main Street Parade

The parade was canceled last year because of rain, but the radar looks clear for this year's festivities.

It starts at 5:30 p.m. at 10th and Main Streets. It will continue down Main to Rhiele Plaza.

There are several other holiday events happening in the area.

Parade committee member Cindy Murray said families are encouraged to spend their whole day downtown.

There's all the shopping downtown, there's a farmers market, there's the Polar Express that day," said Murray. "So, it can just be one big family event and then can kind of parlay into the Christmas Parade at 5:30."

Murray has some advice for those wanting to attend.

"Park in the parking garages," she said. "It will be easy to get in, easy to get out. It's free, and there's plenty of spots in there." 

More than 100 different groups will join in the parade route. That includes WLFI.
