Stay in Your Sleigh,
Holiday Parade

General Info

We are SO excited to announce our third annual Stay in Your Sleigh “reverse” holiday car parade / drive through light show scheduled for Friday, December 2 from 6:00-7:30 PM! This is a FREE community / family fun event; however, donations will be accepted and used to help ensure all Bullock Creek Elementary and Pine River Elementary students have funding to purchase a book at the upcoming December book fair.

There are multiple ways to get involved in the holiday magic this year (further details provided down the page). If you have any questions on the event, please reach out to

How to get involved:


Thank You!

THANK YOU to the volunteers who help bring a little extra magic this holiday season!  Please take a moment to vote below for your favorite parade display. The top three voter-selected favorites will receive a small prize!

Parade Viewing Info

Parade viewers will drive through the standard BCEL drop off/pick up route (see map below) and view the holiday displays. Parade viewers will not leave their vehicles. You will receive some goodies along the way (while supplies last) and have the opportunity to vote on your favorite displays! The viewing line can get lengthy at times, so prepare to spend 30+ minutes in your vehicle, although it may move faster.

Parade Display / Other volunteer Info

The PTO is searching for volunteers to deck out their cars, trunks, trailers, or just a general space for our “reverse” holiday car parade! Groups of friends, businesses, teams, individuals – anyone in the community can create a display. Your display will remain parked and stationary, and the parade viewers will drive by and view the displays. The top three displays, as voted on by the parade viewers, will receive a prize! We are also looking for a few additional volunteers to help during the event, if you do not want to do a display. If you are interested in decorating your vehicle or area for this event or offering to help in other ways, please fill out this form.

Requirements/info for display set ups:

  • The parade will be OUTSIDE, please be prepared and dress accordingly.
  • You must provide your own: car/trailer/etc, decorations, and lights (power source is also helpful but PTO will have some power available)
  • You are responsible for your own set-up (beginning as early as 1:00 PM (half day) and must be complete by 5:45 PM). 
  • Displays must be removed that evening as well. However, you may leave your display temporarily to do your own drive through of the parade, so long as your display is ok to sit by itself. 
  • Questions – contact

Santa's Elves drawing

Historically, students could enter a drawing for a chance at an honorary position as Santa’s elf/helper for the evening. Due to some changes in the parade path and gift hand outs, we will not be selecting elves for the 2022 holiday parade.

Thank you Sponsors / partners
