Holiday decorations are up in Manitou Springs

MANITOU SPRINGS — The 4th Annual Manitou Christmas Parade is almost here and there is no better way to experience this than spending it in Manitou Springs.

Considered the first major holiday events in the Pikes Peak Region, the Manitou Springs Parade never fails to kick off the Christmas season.

News 5 is a proud sponsor of the parade. In fact, you’ll see some of the news crew out there.

Manitou Springs goes all out in decorating for the Holiday Season! Come wander the streets under the colorful lights, and listen to the Carolers as they wander the Avenue.

The parade kicks off at 6 p.m. on December 14. It takes place on Manitou Ave. from Ruxton Ave. to El Paso Blvd.

Everyone is encouraged to get into the spirit of giving by bringing a new, unwrapped toy to the parade. Volunteers from Toys for Tots will be marching in the parade and will collect the toys from parade goers.
