AMMON — The City of Ammon is kicking off the holiday season on Saturday with “Lightapalooza.”
Lightapalooza combines a Christmas parade with a holiday festival. The event will include Christmas decor, vendors and much more.
“McCowin Park will be lit up with lights, and there will be will be local vendors there,” Ammon Mayor Sean Coletti told “Santa will be on a parade float, and then he will go up to the gazebo and greet the children. It’s always a fun day.”
Lights and Santa Claus are just the start of the fun. At the park, local vendors will be on hand. There will be free hot cocoa and treats, as well as music and a fireworks display.
Coletti said that attending Lightapalooza is becoming a beloved part of the holiday season for local families.
“I think it’s probably been going on for five to six years,” he said. “It just keeps getting bigger and better and more fun for everyone. I do see a lot of friends from the area, a lot of Ammon residents and residents from the broader area, are asking about it and are excited to come and see it because they come every year. It’s definitely become a tradition, I think.”

There’s a lot to be grateful for this time of year, and it’s nice to put your cares aside and come enjoy each other’s company for an evening.”
