Every year the annual Christmas Eve Parade goes on a 23–mile journey through the City of Lynn. The parade was started in 1986 by Rich Viger and John’s Oil. Rich Viger passed away on Jan. 24, 2013, but a dedicated committee keeps the parade running every year.
The parade will begin at 5pm from Austin Sq. and follow the traditional route. See the detailed route and estimated times below, via our interactive map. On the night of be sure to follow their Facebook page (by clicking here) for updates as to where they are.
