2021 Rio Linda Elverta Christmas Light Parade Participant Registration

Thank you for entering and participating in this year’s RLE Christmas Light Parade!

In just five short years, this has become one of the biggest holiday events in the Sacramento area. We’ve had people come from as far away as the Bay Area and the foothills to see how we celebrate the holiday season in a rural, small-town California way.

As with our last parade in 2019, we are asking for a $20.88 donation to help fund the event (88 cents to cover the Paypal cut). As you know, this is a grassroots event, funded by donations from local businesses and staffed entirely by volunteers. Permits, licenses, traffic control, audio equipment, all of it is funded by donations.

We thank you very much for your help and look forward to seeing you soon.

If you have any questions, please call or email:
