The Los Banos Chamber of Commerce is hosting its annual Christmas parade on Dec. 2. The parade starts at 6 p.m.

Come early and stake your spot along the parade route and dress warmly. The parade is one of many quality-of-life events the Chamber sponsors throughout the year. This year’s Christmas theme is “Christmas in Candyland.”

The Chamber of Commerce invites local businesses, organizations, and individuals to participate in the parade. If you are interested in participating, you can fill out the Christmas vendor application by calling Executive Director Michelle Sandoval at 209- 826-2495 or request by email at LBCOFC@COMCAST.NET. The application fee is $10. The Chamber is located at 932 6th Main St., Los Banos

For several years, the parade was held on Friday, however, with our growing long-distance commuters coming home late at night, they are unable to participate in or enjoy our Christmas parade. To accommodate our commuters, we made the change from Friday to Saturday night.

For more information on the parade please visit or contact the Chamber of Commerce at 209-826-2495.

The Los Banos Chamber of Commerce is a dynamic and active organization that works towards making businesses and the city successful. We hope to see you at the parade.
