Event Details

31st Annual Hometowne Christmas Celebration

Join us in celebrating "The Twelve Nevada Days of Christmas"! The Sparks Hometowne Christmas Parade will be putting a “Battle Born” twist on the classic Christmas carol. We're intertwining our love for Nevada with our contagious Christmas spirit! 


On the Twelfth day of Christmas, the Silver State gave to me:

Twelve Battle Born flags flying
Eleven Fremont Cannons blasting
Ten feet of snow a-falling
Nine neon lights a-lighting
Eight trains a-railing 
Seven lakes a-swimming
Six zephyrs blowing
Five golden nuggets
Four calling blue birds
Three picon punches
Two tumbleweeds
And a chukar in a pinyon pine tree

The Hometowne Christmas Parade is a Northern Nevada tradition as deep rooted as the spirit of the season itself. The parade will feature marching bands playing the holiday tunes we all know and love, Christmas costumes, adorable animals, and festive floats all representing The Twelve Nevada Days of Christmas. 


Friday December 1, 2017 6:30P-7:00P

Kick off “The Twelve Nevada Days of Christmas” with friends, family, and Mayor Martini as he flips the switch to light our living Christmas tree in Downtown Sparks! The event includes live music and free treats like hot chocolate for the young and young at heart.
