The Christmas Under the Stars parade is a cherished annual tradition for the residents of Brownsburg, which celebrates the holiday season.
Businesses and organizations are invited to participate in the parade by having a float. Hundreds of people gather yearly to watch lighted floats make their way through the town. Following the parade, residents head to Town Hall Green for additional holiday festivities, such as taking pictures with Santa, enjoying the Winter Market, and participating in Santa's Workshop (kids activities) hosted by the Brownsburg Public Library.

Float Application and Rules for Participation:
Float applications are available online through November 24.
- Do not throw candy or goodies from a moving vehicle. The candy does not make it far enough, and children dart into the street.
- All walkers must wear a glow stick or light to walk in the parade. Although the parade route is lit by street lights, it still can be dark. Please keep yourself and others safe by lighting walkers in the parade.
- One Santa only! To preserve the magic of the season, only one Santa and Mrs. Clause are in the parade. Santa's float is the last and grandest float in our parade. All other Santas will be asked to exit the parade staging area.
- The driver's meeting is mandatory. Please make sure a member of your organization attends the driver's meeting. Failure to do so will result in your organization's removal from the parade. The driver's meeting is on November 28 and 29 at 6 p.m. Location will be sent out to parade participants before the meeting.
