2020 Festival of Lights Reverse Parade, December 5, 2020, 5:30 to 8 pm, Ruidoso Convention Center Parking Lot Beautifully lit and fantastically festive, the Festival of Lights Reserve Parade starts at 5:30 pm and will end at 8 pm at the Ruidoso Convention Center. This year due to the global pandemic, we are thinking outside of the box and have decided to have a Reverse Parade. A Reverse Parade is where the floats and static displays are stationary and cars drive through the event. COVID Safe practices will be adhered to as the displays will be 18 feet apart and spectators will remain in their cars. The Theme for this event is “A Season of Unity in the Community”.
