One of southwest Michigan's largest holiday parades, the Dowagiac Candle-light Christmas Parade features more than 125 units of lighted floats, costumed characters and marching bands. Pre-parade entertainment of holiday music and dance kicks off the evening at 6 p.m. at Beckwith Park on Front Street. The tolling bell of a Town Crier, inspired by the Victorian-era, announces the approach of the 7 p.m. grand procession. The holiday parade is staged within Dowagiac's quaint central business district, known best for its specialty shops, fine & casual dining, museums and art galleries.
