Santa arrives in Historic Downtown Kennewick on Saturday December 7th with the Numerica Hometown Holiday from 10 am to 1 pm. An old-fashioned parade welcoming Santa and featuring holiday-themed floats, police and fire vehicles, and entertaining characters starts at 10:30 am.

Get there early and grab a free cup of hot chocolate for the entire family at the Numerica Credit Union hot chocolate bar in Claus Plaza. After the parade, snap a Selfie with Santa and tell him what you want for Christmas. Last year thousands of people lined Kennewick Ave. between Dayton and Auburn streets to experience holiday nostalgia.

Road closures/detours start at 7 am, and vehicles should be removed from the parade route by that time (parked outside of the green areas indicated on the parade route/road closure map). By noon, Kennewick Ave. will reopen to traffic. Afternoon activities will take place in the “Flag Plaza” (aka “Claus Plaza”) parking lot at Kennewick Ave/Benton St. until 1 pm.
