 Phoenix Parks Taking Applications for APS Electric Light Parade

Though temperatures have only just started to drop, organizers for the APS Electric Light Parade already are accepting applications to participate in the Dec. 2 holiday gala.

The theme for the 2006 parade is “Southwest Holiday Traditions.” The APS Electric Light Parade is the biggest attraction of the annual APS Fiesta of Light series of holiday events. The Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department currently is accepting applications from group and organization motorized floats, custom helium parade balloons, performance groups and marching bands. Entry fees range from no charge up to $400.

The parade gets under way at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, on Central Avenue at Montebello (just south of Bethany Home Road). The 2006 parade will head south on Central Avenue to Camelback Road, where it will turn east to Seventh Street, where it will turn south and end at Indian School Road.

Hundreds of thousands of spectators line the parade route each year to enjoy the amazing spectacle of lighted floats, performance groups and the sights-and-sounds of the holidays.

Groups or individuals interested in participating can find comprehensive registration information and submit an application online at or they can call 602-262-4627. Parks staff will accept registration applications until Nov. 3 or until a total of 80 entries have been accepted.
