Christmas Parade Day
WELCOME TO A 'CHRISTMAS IN KINGMAN'
Kingman's Lighted Christmas Parade is one of the most highly anticipated events in Kingman, KS each year. The Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce is gracious to have the opportunity to organize and run the event and a day's full of activities for you and the entire family to enjoy.
The parade and other activities take place each year on the 1st Saturday of December - Saturday, December 2nd, 2023. In previous years, the Lighted Christmas Parade has had a theme in which floats would choose to incorporate in their design. Each year, the theme has been used less and less. Moving forward, there will no longer be a 'theme' for Kingman's Lighted Christmas Parade. It will now be a 'Christmas in Kingman' allowing participants to pick and choose their own 'theme' and not be limited on what they can and cannot do.
More information will be provided as planning begins. Please keep checking back to our website, our monthly 'Chamber Connections' newsletter, and our Facebook Page for regular updates. In the meantime, you can see what all went on during last year's event in 2022.

2022 Snow Prince & Princess
Congratulations are in order to Alayna Cousins, who has been announced as this year's Snow Princess, and Vinnie McQueen as our Snow Prince.
Both get to personally meet Santa, receive a fun bag of goodies, and ride in their own float during the Lighted Christmas Parade.
2022 Christmas Light Pole Contest
Not only does it take a lot of planning to put such a large community event together, it also takes volunteers and funding. The Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce is a 501(c)6 not-for-profit organization. One unfortunate downside to this is our capabilities of raising funding -- being unable to apply for a majority of community grants and even Facebook fundraising, our options become limited.
If you are a business or individual that would like to contribute to our event, please contact Shelby at the Chamber office for more information on how you can be involved (620) 532-1853 or email@example.com.
