See the Holiday Lights and Be a Part of the “Jingle thru North Plains” Parade!
December 2nd, 2021.

This will be the 18th year for the North Plains Jingle Parade. North Plains individuals, families, friends, and organizations are encouraged to decorate anything that moves and participate in the parade.

Some folks decorate trucks and trailers, others bring the family car, and many residents rent golf carts from J & S Golf Carts on Main Street at (503) 647-1984. YES, we are allowing golf carts! Motorcycles and bicycles can join as well. It is up to you to keep pace with the parade, which moves about 10 miles an hour, and have a light or two you can attach to your wheeled vehicle.

Line up info:  The Jingle parade begins and ends this year at the parking area between Hits The Spot Cafe and Columbia Bank. The procession lasts about 40 minutes.


Show off Your Holiday Spirit!

A panel of judges will grant one lucky participant the Best Decorated Vehicle award!
