Fontana Christmas Parade, winter festival will take place on Saturday 11 December | News


Local residents who love the holidays can rejoice: after a year of absence, the Fontana Christmas parade and the winter festival are back in 2021.

The traditionally popular Fontana events will take place on Saturday December 11 in the city center.

The parade will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Sierra Avenue and Arrow Boulevard, and the festival will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Miller Park, 17004 Arrow.

Both events are free and the weather is expected to be sunny, with temperatures in the 60s.
