The parade, a program of DKA Charities, is presented by Maple Hill Auto Group with support from WKZO - Midwest Communications and the Kalamazoo Valley Museum. Balloon sponsors include: Educational Community Credit Union, Bronson Healthcare Group, Midwest Radio Group (WVFM, WKZO & The Touch), and Meijer. This parade would not be possible without the support of these specific mentioned organzations that help defray the cost of this very important community event.
The parade is a yearly tradition involving organizations, businesses, schools and colleges. The Public Media Network will televise the event live. And, as the tradition holds true, Santa is always the grand finale.
Loaves and Fishes invites you to bring canned food items to the parade. Just prior to the parade, look for Meijer food carts pushed by volunteers.
After the parade, on the Kalamazoo Mall, the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety will have several special vehicles on site for tours. The Kalamazoo Valley Museum will feature live entertainment, craft time and a special Santa suit on display. Also, enjoy a kiddie ferris wheel, inflatables, arts and crafts and other family friendly activities.
