The parade has a new route this year due to ongoing construction on S. Santa Fe Ave. This year the parade will begin on W. Broadway, behind Famous Dave’s. The route will continue down W. Broadway, parallel to the WAVE Waterpark and then will turn onto Main Street in front of the Krikorian Metroplex. The parade will conclude in the Historic Downtown at Main Street and Citrus.

It’s a Comic Book Christmas, Celebrating 75 Years of Marvel Comics

Over 75 parade entries and 15,000 spectators are expected to participate in the Vista Christmas Parade on Saturday December 6, 2014 in downtown Vista.  The theme for the parade this year is “A Comic Book Christmas: Celebrating 75 Years of Marvel Comics.” A group of cos-play Superheroes will serve as the Grand Marshall by committee. Also back this year, by popular demand, will be the Star Wars characters from last year’s parade.

“The parade is going to be a great community event,” said Ashley Bedard, Owner/Broker of RE/MAX Regal and Chair of the Vista Chamber of Commerce. “We want to encourage those in the parade and attending the parade to get into the theme and have some comic book fun this year.”

Santa Fe Ave. After the parade, the community is welcome to come over to the Krikorian Metroplex quad to take pictures with the Superheroes, the Star Wars characters, and Santa. Other activities at the Krikorian include a DJ, bounce houses, and Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps spraying their Snowfoam.

The parade begins at 1:00pm. Participants in the parade will vie for awards for Best Use of Theme, Best Christmas Spirit, and Best Overall Entry. For more information, please visit www.VistaWinterfest.com.

    The Vista Christmas Parade holds such special memories for me. After watching the Parade (the first year Ii moved to Vista) – I decided to join the group that produced it… and met my Best Friend Eleanor Hutchins. We became inseparable, and produced many Special Events together. The Battle of the Chiliheads (for the Vista Firefighters Assoc) became our signature event. So many good memories, funny ones, chaotic ones – all starting with the Christmas Parade. Good Times!!!!
