Tin City Lights Forklift Parade

Our community’s favorite parade is back, right in the heart of our little drinking town with a farming problem. That’s right, Tin City is getting lit this holiday season! Bring the whole family for an evening of Holiday cheer at our annual Tin City Lights Forklift Parade on Thursday, Dec. 15.
All of the Tin City businesses are ready to spread holiday cheer like never before. The evening kicks off at 5 p.m., with the parade starting at 6:30. Santa, that’s right…the big man himself, will be in attendance for complimentary photos with the kids (and to listen to their wish lists, of course). Parents can wander through the Tin City neighborhood and gather up those last-minute boozy holiday gifts. Stay toasty and warm with your pick of craft beer, cider, wine, cocktails, and enjoy dinner from food trucks and ETTO’s brand new Pasta Bar.
Spread some holiday cheer for a good cause! The Toy Bank of Greater Paso Robles will be setting up donation boxes for guests to bring unwrapped toys.
Entrance and parking for the evening are both free. As a friendly reminder, parking is limited, so please plan accordingly. To make life easy, SLO Safe Ride will be offering transportation. Road closures will take place on Marquita Ave, Limestone Way, and Blue Rock Rd. from 5:30 – 7:30pm.
If you’re new to Tin City, it is a charming industrial park, where you can find craft beverages, wineries, olive oil, ice cream, pasta and fun. There’s something for everyone in this eclectic and lively neighborhood of artisanal producers. Cheers, and holiday love from Tin City!
