30th Annual Festival of Lights Parade

When: Sat., Dec. 6, 5:50 p.m. 2014

The theme for the 30th annual Festival of Lights Parade may be "Through the Eyes of a Child," but the star of the day is retired Navy Lt. Jim Downing, who at 101 is the oldest survivor of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The Colorado Springs resident will serve as the grand marshal of the parade, which starts at 5:50 p.m. at Tejon and St. Vrain streets, then proceeds down Tejon to Vermijo. If you'd rather avoid the crowds and the nighttime cold, maybe try the Festival of Lights Family Fun Day instead; it's a free event featuring magic, music and other attractions, and it happens between 10 and 2 at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum (215 S. Tejon St., cspm.org). — Kirk Woundy
