Join us a the Holiday Light Parade – Nov. 17

Rudolph and the Island of the Misfit Toys

A photo of downtown Traverse City at night with Holiday LightsOur wonderful group of volunteers have been working hard on creating our Holiday Light Parade float for this year’s Holiday Light Parade in downtown Traverse City on November 17, to celebrate the tree lighting and Santa’s arrival.

Our theme this year is Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer with a focus on “The Island of the Misfit Toys.”  The island of the misfit toys is filled with toys that are seen as broken and imperfect, deemed “not good enough” to be delivered by Santa. We think this theme is relevant because many times people with disabilities are viewed as broken, imperfect, and not good enough. This isn’t true at all!

Disabilities are a natural part of our human experience and positively affect and enhance the diversity in our community. EVERYONE should have the opportunity to fully participate, contribute, and share their gifts & talents.

Be a misfit toy with us! If you’d like to be part of our float this year contact  Demarie, (231) 922-0903 ext.321. Everyone is welcome!

Mark you calendars for this free, family fun event on November 17, in downtown Traverse City and cheer on our misfit toys and Rudolph!

Thank you to our fantastic sponsors!
